A proper RPM should install documentation in /usr/doc/freeciv-1.7.2/.
The problem you experience may be due to a too short path. Try adding
/usr/local/bin and maybe /usr/games (and the current directory) to your
path thusly

        export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin:/usr/games:.

If this does not help, try to find "civclient" by issuing the magic

        rpm -ql freeciv-client

that will tell you where "civclient" is stored. Set your path to this
location, or

        cd /where/I/found/freeciv
