rpm -e wine

Is there somebody out there who can tell my why it is so good to compile
Wine yourself? There are binaries on winehq for almost every version,
architecture, distribution and packet manager. And these install also
default .wine directories during first startup with reasonable defaults
for the specialities of the distribution they are for.

          Never run a touchy system!!!"
