which <program name>

Will tell you the path to a program that happens to be in your search path

echo $PATH

will show you your search path.

If you need to find something use "find" or on FreeBSD, possibly "locate", however, you'll have to run locatedb if it hasn't been ran and populated the indexes yet.
