Code:
rpm -ql `rpm -qa` | grep -i lspci

What do you get?

I think lspci is one of those commands like lsmod that you can't individually add or remove. The command lspci does work on my box but the rpm querry doesn't return any results.
You could try the command: scanpci
I'm thinking you left out system and / or development packages during the install.

Try using
su -
instead of
su

That way you actually get root's environment settings.

btw: you can also use lspci (even as non-root) by simply typing its path:
Code:
/sbin/lspci
