im not sure where source rpm's extract the source to by default, but check the /usr/src/ directory for your source code...it will be in another folder like , gee, maybe../usr/src/xmule/ ? lol

how about looking at the output of

find / -type d | grep xmule | less

i would make a guess at somewhere in /usr/local/src but i dont know redhat so thats pretty much a guess.
