Yes I know.
You should make that directory. Just make a .wine dir in your home, and 
everything will work ok.
I think there is a glitch in the Redhat profile - they forgot to create that 

But if you want to play with the wine sources, or you want to file bug 
reports, then you should upgrade to the newest version.

Good Luck
