Firstly /usr/local/bin/ is a directory.
When you link a file with ln -s <sourcefile/directory> <destination-dir>
an link with exactly the same name as the sourcefile/directory will be
created in the destination directory.

So `ln -s /usr/local/winetools/findwine /usr/local/bin` will create a link
from /usr/local/bin/findwine to /usr/local/winetools/findwine.

See `man ln`.

       Create  a  link  to  the  specified TARGET with optional LINK_NAME.  If
       LINK_NAME is omitted, a link with the same basename as  the  TARGET  is
       created in the current directory.
