They might be part of XFree86-4.x, but I don't have them.

rpm -q XFree86

and I doubt they are in any earlier XFree86 than 4.

Well, you could take the bull by the horns and upgrade to the newest
XFree86, or upgrade to the newest RH release, or get a Wine rpm that
suits your system, or get the Wine source and brew your own Wine.
If you want an rpm, you can build one from the source rpm (directory
SRPMS in the distro, IIRC).  Wine doesn't need those libraries unless
they were present when it was ./configured...

(from <wine>/ANNOUNCE):

It should also be available from any other site that mirrors
For more download locations, see These
locations also hold pre-built documentation packages in various
formats: wine-doc-html.tar.gz, wine-doc-txt.tar.gz, wine-doc.pdf.gz

You can also get the current source directly from the CVS tree. Check for details.
