This does it: 

	yum list 'wine*'

Wine does some stuff rather later than you'd expect. For instance,
it doesn't seem to respond to "wine --version" without first creating a
prefix, which rather goes against the UNIX philosophy: a program should
always respond to the command line -?/--help, -v/--version options and
report any invalid arguments and options before it does anything else.
