Barring things like sh run | s eigrp - are there any show commands which will display the configured active timer value for a given eigrp process?

The EIGRP active timer is displayed using the show ip protocols command.

R1#show ip protocols | i eigrp|Active    
Routing Protocol is "eigrp 123"
  Active Timer: 3 min

show eigrp address-family timers

That should display the information that you are looking for.

I think. I don't typically fiddle with the timers.
