I think that the question being asked is not so much which file you're 
referring to, but rather, why are you using the source tarball rather 
than the Mandrake RPM found on the full display of the Sourceforge page.

The page section you linked to shows only the source tarballs; notice 
the "show only this package" in the section copy below? The link you 
gave is the "show only this package" link for the source tarballs.

The full page is found at

and contains the following section

There is presumably a reason that the Wine project has compiled binaries 
for all the major distributions, and the fact that they have gone to 
that extra effort suggests that you would probably have better results 
from the binaries for your distribution, rather than compiling from 
source yourself.

Hope this helps,
