If you had to manually blow away that directory, I would be inclined to 
think that the RPM was not completely uninstalled. You might want to 
check around a bit more. For example, on the Wine rpm file, execute
rpm -qlp wine-....rpm (the name of the rpm file)
That will list all the files the RPM installs, including the paths where 
the files go. Check all those paths to see if anything remains. Also, 
you might want to check what is in the paths listed in /etc/ld.so.conf. 
And finally check the file dates of the wine files in /usr/local/bin and 
/usr/local/lib (assuming you used the default Wine installation paths.

CVS Wine works fine on RH9; that is what I am using.
