The problem here is that we're all playing the guessing game as to your
configuration.  Please post any section of your httpd.conf that
references "cgi-bin" or "*.pl".  Better would be if you could make your
httpd.conf available as either an attachment or a URL.  Finally, what
are the permissions on all of the subdirectories in the path, i.e. the
output of "ls -ld /srv /srv/www /srv/www/cgi-bin"?  There is something
in your configuration that is denying access to your cgi script, and I'm
afraid we're not going to be able to help without more information.
