Might you have the perl script stuff defined in an .htaccess file that may be 
on one server but not the other?  

Are there any files being included in the httpd.conf ?  Do these match 
somewhat?  Are there any errors at all being put in the error_log file when 
your script is attempted to execute?  what's the directory directive look 
like for where your script is?
