If memory serves, apache+FCGI isn't much different to apache+mod_perl, but
lighttpd+FCGI is a substantial difference. Of course I don't have numbers
handy to back this up, and apache+mod_perl+perlbal or +squid or whatever is a
different matter again.
Personally I tend to go for FCGI by default simply for simplicity of
deployment and management; mod_perl strikes me as a rotary belt-fed nailgun
and usually all I want is a hammer.
