The which that RPM installs is pretty basic and can only search for executables.
There are OS/2 ports such as or, source included (Hobbes) which can search for much more, eg

which (v2.1.4, 2002.06.26) for OS/2, from Newtware                         8:2

Usage:  which.exe [options] [cmd ... ]

    (default behavior is to find location of program executed as "cmd")
    -1  show the first match from all cmd args; display nothing if not found
    -a  list all matches (With -1, list all first matches of cmd args)
    -b  search directories in BOOKSHELF for book (.inf and .pdf) files
    -d  search directories in DPATH for data files
    -e  search directories in a given env var; Example: -e EPMPATH
    -h  search directories in HELP for help (.hlp) files
    -l  search directories in LIBPATH (BEGIN/ENDLIBPATH) for DLLs, LIBs, As
    -i  search directories in C_INCLUDE_PATH for header (.h) files
    -q  quiet mode (only returns error code without onscreen messages)
    -s  show file date/time and size
    -u  revert to OS/2 style '\' dir separator (default is now Unix style '/')

   cmd  name to be searched (wildcards can be used)

Examples:   -las emx*
           which.exe -las foo*.bar  (override the default extension)
