11 There is no such package. There are only very few -bin packages. In
12 other words, "-bin" is not a magic string you append to package names.
14 As for Wine, the ebuild changed recently to offer both 64bit as well as
15 32bit Wine. I think the binaries are called "wine32" and "wine64". Two
16 new USE flags have been introduced to control this: "win32" and "win64".
17 By default, both are enabled. If you disable the "win64" USE flag,
18 you'll get only the 32bit Wine. And vice versa of course.
