CVS HEAD is not very stable yet.  Unless you want to help hacking the
bleeding edge Validator, I'd recommend downloading production version
tarballs from http://validator.w3.org/source/

That's mod_perl 1.99+, not Perl 1.99+.  Validator's support for mod_perl
is still somewhat fragile, that's one reason why that part of the config
is commented out by default.  Try without mod_perl (ie comment out those
sections again) and see if that helps.
