Everything is working functionally in this release.
What does not
The mouse cursor is still flaky. If you have problems, re-compile with the mouse cursor hack below. Game does not play nice with SELinux. Some of the game modules require text relocation and I had to chcon them to textrel_shlib_t and generally I had many problems with SELinux and wine compiled from source. However, building my own RPM from source eliminated these problems so something in the RPM building process is fixing whatever problems for redhat and I'm curious enough to look into that later, when I get time.
What was not tested
Made an Albion character to level 24 so nothing beyond that.

Applying The Patch:
cd $HOME/Download/wine patch -p0 < wine-X-cursor-hack.patch # If you have already installed from source, just re-run make make -s > /dev/null && sudo make install
Alternately, you can run make from within the $HOME/Download/wine/dlls/winex11.drv folder and copy winex11.drv.so to wherever wine was installed, probably /usr/local/lib/wine.
If you are worried about the cursor hack messing up other programs you can run wine directly from the source tree without installing:
