Question /usr/lib vs /usr/libexec


I just installed nagios 1.2 & nagios 1.4 plugins from packages on linuxpackages. Interesting where different things were installed

nagios executable /usr/bin
nagios plugins /usr/lib/nagios/plugins
nagios cgi scripts /usr/libexec/nagios

While I assume the location for these files was in part decided by the package builder, can anyone shed light on general use of the various /usr directories?

I'm not sure you'll find exactly want you want, but it can help.
