There's a huge difference between running perl in the normal CGI way and
running mod_perl.  As far as I know mod_perl has not been ported to
cygwin and would require a great deal of effort to get working. 
However, if you just want to run perl CGI scripts you don't have to do
anything special, just run the script as a CGI and have the normal
"#!/usr/bin/perl" shebang.
