Are you in Linux? I'm not sure about Windows but certainly in Apache under Linux if you specify a directory as a script directory you don't need any extension, or can use whatever. The script just needs to be executable with the shebang.

That being said almost nothing of ours actually runs Perl as a CGI directly because it is too damn slow that way, our stuff is basically all FastCGI with C cgi accessors.
