Without being able to see the config, the name of the script, the 
contents of the script,  or the directory it's in, the simple stuff

Does the AddHandler directive actually apply to the directory that 
contains the script?

Does the script end in .cgi ?

What shows up in your apache error log?

What error shows up in the browser when you try to browse to the script?
