I don't think I did... ;)

Yes it is (ok more like 11 but ok). For me it works for the programs it should
work on...

Be sure it is compiled with everything that FC/FE{3,4,5,devel} can support. The
only thing is that some stuff is split out into subpackages and if users want
that support they need to install it. Take a look at debian for example. Fedora
Extras wine layout is basically the same. For the X driver... that should work
out of the box so I suspect that the user has a different problem. In any way
direct FE wine users to to file bug against wine.
This way I can easily track such bugs and decide if they should be filed
against wine or if it really is a packaging but.
