I was able to patch and build 32-bit wine on 64-bit 12.04, using a
debootstrap chroot:

Setting up the chroot took a couple of minutes, and was trivial to do.

However, there appears to be a bug in wine or ubuntu which prevents
SW:TOR from forking the display process, so I can't actually use wine on
12.04 to play the game I want.  But building custom wine works fine.
