Well, for Fedora rpath are considered bad and as wine does not allow for
--disable-rpath (which I would rather use) I applied this patch to get rid of
them (and solve the problems that they where causing.

Maybe fedora is broken in a way here or maybe it is not but rpath need to go
out for the Fedora Extras rpm and if this fixes some bugs which are only there
on fedora and the fedora rpms I am glad to close the according bugs (and leave
a not the changelog so I remember what I did).
