(yes/no) yes
We need to remove the rpm as root, please enter your root password

Starting wine rpm removal...

Warning !! wine binary (still) found, which may indicate
a (conflicting) previous installation.
You might want to abort and uninstall Wine first.
Running configure...

Your main problem isn't connected with the old version of wine (remove wine and libwine). It's a problem with compiler - you don't have any. When removing old wine, install 'gcc' packages ('urpmi gcc' should do).

You have no compiler installed.
