When I install executable I know I can easily run which sometool and find it (for most cases) but how about when I install something like apr or apr-util where does it install it to? I need to pass that path to a ./configure command and can't seem to locate it on my machine.



Yum will follow the directions given in the RPM that it is installing. If you want to find out where something got installed, use, for example, 'rpm -ql apr' to see where those files got installed.
