The wiki has instructions for building Wine at http://wiki.winehq.org/Recommended_Packages (32 bit) and http://wiki.winehq.org/WineOn64bit (64 bit). How to patch can be found in the instructions for regression testing, http://wiki.winehq.org/RegressionTesting (scroll down to the Patching Your Git Tree section). The regression testing wiki page also has clear step-by-step instructions for building Wine, so you might want to read the whole thing.

My OS is not listed on the wiki you gave on instructions and building Wine, and it seems to assume I already know a great deal about such operations, when I do not. Anything noob proof?
And how do I make the patch file then into a .diff? The file format I am guessing for Wine patches judging from ¨patch -p1 < patch_name.diff¨.
