If I have several location blocks in a server block, and I want to use
just one location block that has my fastcgi definitions for perl (hence
@perl), are you recommending I just duplicate all the configuration
in each location block that needs to redirect to perl?

Saying this another way, by example:

location @perl {
# 20 lines of fast cgi defs
}

location /realm_a {
auth_basic "realm_a";
location ~ \.pl$ {
try_files /does_not_exist @perl;
}
}

location /realm_b {
auth_basic "realm_b";
location ~ \.pl$ {
try_files /does_not_exist @perl;
}
}

location /realm_c {
auth_basic "realm_c";
location ~ \.pl$ {
try_files /does_not_exist @perl;
}
}

Your recommendation is to do this:

location /realm_a {
auth_basic "realm_a";
location ~ \.pl$ {
# 20 lines of fast cgi defs
}
}

location /realm_b {
auth_basic "realm_b";
location ~ \.pl$ {
# 20 lines of fast cgi defs
}
}

location /realm_c {
auth_basic "realm_c";
location ~ \.pl$ {
# 20 lines of fast cgi defs
}
}

Did I get that right? :)
