Just as a general rule for rpm-based systems, if you want to develop
code that uses a given package, you need the -devel rpm for that
package.  Building Wine is definitely a program development activity, as
understood by distro packagers.

Yes, ./configure should have caught that and given you a tongue-lashing
about it, but nobody's perfect.
