its only a link, but will google see it as a page redirect?
If so, then i am fairly sure Google will not follow it via a Perl link (plus of course the webmaster may have used robots.txt to ban bots from the cgi dir in any case). With PHP, then it *may* do as the Google webmaster guidelines suggest PHP params are read as long as they are not "&id=".
However, this may just cause G! to index the redirect.php page itself rather than the target.

Which flags up an interesting point if exchanging links with sites that have a "links page".
Double check their robots file to ensure that the page they are putting your link on is not blocked from being spidered.
Otherwise, you wont get any link credit from the search engines.
