if you installing using "apt-get" i.e. binaries of the package then they will be available in share folder of your ros distribution directory. eg. I have ros indigo, i have it in /opt/ros/indigo/share/gmapping.

I can't not find /opt/ros/indigo/share/gmapping. too, however. I don't think I make 'catkin_make' work well. And after I install openslam_gmapping before I install gmapping, I go over this trouble. Thank you anyway!

can you tell me the procedure you followed for installing gmapping? which your ros distribution? if you simply run following command, all the required packages for gmapping will be installed and be available in share folder of your ros directory.

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gmapping

The procedure with catkin_make is when you are installing some package from a source code. In that case, the source code and the compiled libraries etc will be in your catkin workspace. It is generally suggested to install package as binaries unless you want to make some changes in the code.
