how to run "gaim-devel" rpm after installing


Hello all,
working on redhat 8.

just now i downloaded "gaim-devel-1-0.74-1rh8.i386.rpm"
installed it using......."rpm -ivh gaim-devel-1.............rpm"
.........
but as happens with non devel rpm packages ( generally the program starts running)........when i'm just writing "gaim" on the prompt..
giving error and saying "command not found"
How am i suppose to run "gaim" then...?

seeking for help

regards
