I had several very helpful offline email conversations about the upgrade
from 7.1 to 7.2 and the Perl CGI failure. In particular, one person
suggested I load PTF SI54023
http://www-912.ibm.com/a_dir/as4ptf.nsf/2cd2b90688ce805586257cc8006a22a5/83d78df8b216a72c86257d5000008eb7?OpenDocument
After doing that, Perl CGI was working again.

For future reference, here is the secret Apache configuration sauce:

ScriptAlias /perl/ /QOpenSys/perl/webwrap/
AddType application/x-httpd-perl .pl
Action application/x-httpd-perl /perl/apachedft
Alias /perl-bin /www/apachedft/htdocs/perl-bin

Use one alias for the wrapper (here, /perl/) and another alias for the
Perl scripts (here, /perl-bin) Put the wrapper shell script (here,
apachedft) in /QOpenSys/Perl/webwrap and put the Perl scripts in the
folder you want to serve them from.

I hope this helps someone in the future. It'll probably be me! :-)
