Bill, it seems we do have mod_perl now. I'll read the documentation and 
try using PerlSetVar.  Thanks

I'm still interested in any thoughts that might account for why the 
script default config_file parameter is used even though QUERY_STRING 
passes in and assigns the myconfig path to $DEFAULT_CONFIG_FILE 
(subsequently assigned to config_file).  I tried making it a global 
variable but got the same results.
