To use the examples in the kit you need to build the kit. To use perl you'll 
need to build it with sfio or fcgi_stdio (see instructions), and also build 
the FCGI module. Getting perl going might take a bit of work.

Only if you want the fastcgi scripts to work :) With your download of 
mod_fastcgi should be mod_fastcgi.html. Read it. Basically you can set 
fastcgi's up with AppClass and <Location> with SetHandler. There's also an 
example httpd.conf in the kit I think.

Good luck!
