Lighttpd + FCGI + Perl, anyone?

I'm trying to get the above setup to work, but I've found a big fat  
zero when it comes to useful info on how to do this with perl. The  
php and ruby crowd have got endless examples! (perhaps mongers are  
just seen as more resourceful?)

If anyone has managed this, I'm most interested in what the  
fastcgi.server part of the lighttpd.conf looks like, as this is the  
most fatty part of the "big fat zero".

Currently, this won't even let the server start:

fastcgi.server    = ( "/fcgi/" =>
                       		"host" => "localhost"
                           ,"socket" => "/tmp/lighttpd.socket"
                           ,"bin-path" => "/usr/local/bin/perl"
