Did you ever get this to work? I am using the 1and1 Linux package and keep getting the 500 error as well. 1and1 says it's the .htaccess which I removed now and still have the same problem.
Script is properly installed in the CGI bin with 644 permissions set and other scripts in this bin (form mail) work fine.

Nevermind, found the error. 1and1 requires this to be executable, so the permissions need to be set to something like 744 and then it works.
Two things that are helpful with 1and1:
The Perl location is the default from the script: #!/usr/bin/perl
