eximon.bin is the actual compiled binary.

eximon is a shell script wrapper which takes care of setting up
necessary environment variables to allow eximon.bin to work.

This is a fairly common idiom for graphical Unix programs which are
cross-platform and not distributed as part of the base X11 system.
Most commonly, it permits fixing up of LD_LIBRARY_PATH and friends.
