At least in gst-plugins-rs docs/meson.build searches for gst-plugins-doc-cache-generator in path or /usr/libexec/gstreamer-1.0
but not in /usr/lib/gstreamer-1.0 where it is installed by the package.

Additional info:
* 1.20.3-2

Steps to reproduce:
Run meson on gst-plugins-rs - doc cache update will be skipped.
This task depends upon

Arch actively avoids /usr/libexec as per the Arch Package Guidelines [1]. Also, see the "arch-meson" wrapper script [2].

If it's important, the "gst-plugins-rs" dev's should probably make it configurable in the meson.build file.
