[Chicago-talk] Which cgi-bin in Ubuntu?

I am about to attempt primitive web experiments with Perl, and I've hit 
a snag. I'm using Ubuntu Linux 9.10 and Apache2. The general area for 
the server is in /var/www/, but the cgi-bin directory is in /usr/lib/.

The two recommendations I've found by Googling are: 1. edit 
/etc/apache2/httpd.conf, or 2. create a symlink.

Does anyone here have any strong opinions on this matter? Casual 
guesses? Reasonable advice?
