http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_alias.html#scriptalias says
what ScriptAlias does. It is "Alias" with "Options +ExecCGI".

nginx does have an alias directive.

nginx does not "do" cgi. You can proxy_pass to a cgi-handling http server,
or fastcgi_pass or scgi_pass or something similar, to a suitable server.

Once you have your cgi-handling server working, you configure the
appropriate *_pass in the appropriate location block.

Good luck with it,
