What is this package?

I'm trying to compile WINe and that needs Flex. However, Flex needs several packages for itself that I don't have. One I couldn't identify is this one:

I would keep finding that one when looking for other packages Flex needs, but what I found on was compeletely diferent and didn't look like anything. Try pasting the name of the package I put above and see what you come up with. It is the 64 bit version I need (though I think that's the most dominant one anyway) as well as these two: (64 bit)

I keep finding that package you showed me, but I already have that. ...yet I STILL have those dependencies. What's the deal?

I'm about to go to glib 2.3. Think that will help?

Let me reprase that... I thought I had it. I am downloading it now.
