you need to have ExecCGI in as an option, if you don't

the cgi-bin directory contains scripts, either by
ScriptAlias'ing it (the most common way), using ForceMimeType
inside a LocationMatch or adding a handler (use AddHandler)
for an extension you'd like to recognise.
This should just work:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
