You could also make an apache user/group and run it as that then add
that the perl group to that user's list of groups.  There's no problem
with doing that (many distros have an 'apache' user/group) and you can
have that account just as restricted as the nobody account.  Then you
get finer-grained control over who can access the perl stuff and still
have the web server access it.  You'll need to change ownership of the
stuff that the apache process needs read and/or write access to and then
you should be set.
