the Debian package, which I understand you have installed, already contains
/usr/lib/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi . This directory is the standard Debian place 
for CGI scripts, and it's defined in /etc/apache2/sites-available/default as

 ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/

so the default Apache2 install should end up with
http://whatever/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi working.

If you have disabled this and want to run the CGI from a different place,
I suggest symlinking /usr/lib/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi to the other place
and making sure you have the 'FollowSymlinks' (and 'ExecCGI', of course)
option enabled there.

Hope this helps,
