Have you checked how much Wine has grown in size since then and
factored that in as well?
Five years seems to be before CodeWeavers took the torch (I don't know
when they started contributing *big time* to Wine) with the MSI,
DirectX and other improvements.
A way to get a better idea would be to get the number of lines in the
make output and have a lines/second comparison. This is because Wine
could be twice as big as it was five years ago.
