Apache or NGINX FastCGI Support for Perl

I was surprised to see that cPanel's installation of mod_fcgid doesn't have Perl configured out of the box, given usually cPanel's Perl base. I was able to enable it simply enough, though, by adding `AddHandler fcgid-script .fpl` to the `<IfModule fcgid_module>` declaration in /etc/apache2/confd/fcgid.conf. Is there anything else that would be good to add to optimize the configuration? Also has anyone enabled FastCGI support specifically for Perl on cPanel's flavor of NGINX so as to take Apache out of the loop? Most of the documentation I see on the web with FastCGI and NGINX seems PHP oriented.
