           Summary: Wineinstall blocks midway through
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.55.
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: build-env
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: juhos at mbnet.fi

When installing wine with tools/wineinstall, it first runs configure, then asks
if you want to install system-wide, then runs make. This is wrong, because it
forces the user to stick around until configure is finished.

Instead, the question should be asked as a first thing when wineinstall runs.
This way, local (non-systemwide) installs could run to finish without further
user input, and even system-wide ones would only block just before actual

Of course it would be even better to also ask root password (if needed) at the
beginning, but that might have security risks, based on how it is implemented.
