As it turns out, the delays I was experiencing with fast_cgi were due to 
the missing "AddHandler"  and "FastCgiServer" options.  I guess 
something can be said for RTFM afterall. :)

With those in place, I am seeing rendering of < 1sec per page.

FastCGI definitely has a lot over mod_perl. :)

Just an FYI, you can put the AddHandler and FastCgiServer options 
_within_ the VirtualHosts directive, but keep in mind that it would 
restrict the FastCGI operation to only that VirtualHost..
