How to replace Apache w/ Nginx that only serves Perl (cgi) based pages?

Greetings, all
I'm hoping to retire Apache on all my servers with Nginx. I've been running these servers, and
Apache for YEARS, and they've all become a bit of a struggle for Apache. To the point; I almost
never use PHP. The sites are all based on Perl -- cgi scripts with Perl functions in them. Anyway,
I've been reading the documentation, FAQ, and anything else I could find, for a couple of days now.
But don't feel any closer to figuring/knowing how to get a copy of Nginx running for my
circumstances. I see recipes for everything from making good daiquiris, to using Silverstripe, to
every other language/CMS but Perl cgi. Maybe I'm over complicating it in my mind, or perhaps I'm
the only one that uses Perl to serve up web pages. But I'd greatly appreciate any guidance, or
pointers to documentation specific to this circumstance.

Thank you for all your time, and consideration.
