On Debian Lenny, it appears that modeline is off by default in vim. You can put the following in your local .vimrc to enable:

set syntax=on set modeline set modelines=2
modelines=2 appears to be the number of lines from the top of file to scan for modelines. Then put this on the 2nd line of your source:
# vim: syntax=perl
You can manually set the syntax scheme in the vim session with
:set syntax=perl
