I do not personally know anything about the precompiled RPMs. I always 
compile from CVS. I have noticed that when compiled on a computer 
without CUPS, and then installing CUPS, wine did not detect the newly 
installed CUPS. I had to do a "make distclean" and remake wine, at which 
point everything really did show up automagically.

So I guess if the wine RPM is compiled on a system without CUPS, it 
probably won't detect your CUPS installation.

My personal feeling is that for alpha software that is changing as 
rapidly as wine, compiling from CVS is the way to go. It may seem a 
little intimidating at first, but once configured, updating is a piece 
of cake. I just go into my wine directory and type:
# cvs update
# ./configure
# make depend
# make
# make install

And that is it. No muss, no fuss, no even hard to remember:-) Except of 
course that when the source code is just setting there, the urge to 
tinker is irresistable.

My real email is akamail.com at dclark (or something like that).
