the Perl binary isn't relocatable (at least up to 5.10) so I don't think 
that you can just copy the binary, and the libraries and it will just 
work.  I'm not too familiar with how bsd jails work, but you might want 
to try downloading perl and compiling from source within the jail, and 
doing the same for mod_perl and Apache.

Does free bsd have a decent virtual machine that you could use instead 
of a jail?  Then you would be able to avoid this problem.  Chroot jails 
are old and busted, virtualization is the new hotness, at least that's 
what I've heard.
