command line rpm dependency problem

I am trying to install an rpm and it says I am missing a dynamic library(? a .so file). I have a newer version of this file and have been creating links all over the place: /lib, /usr/local/lib, etc.
Will it maybe not take the new one? if so can I get both somehow? is there something I can type, after rpm, to tell me where it is looking. I had this problem before and I had to place the link in /lib for the program to recognize it. I use

rpm -Uvh file_name.rpm

any help would be appreciated. I did read through rpm --help and couldn't figure it our. thks
