Then how am I doing Wine development for the past 2 years on 64-bit rpm
based distro? Or compiling XOrg as 32-bit and 64-bit on the same distro?

This is just a bug in 32-bit rpm - it shouldn't be including that config
file, only libraries. Besides using "--force" one can still install the
32-bit rpm. As for include files - they should be identical between 32-bit
and 64-bit or the library is broken and shouldn't be used at all.
