You can use winetricks, but you will have to tell it to use the Wine you compiled yourself or it will use the one installed on your system:


WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix WINE=/path/to/wine-git/wine sh winetricks whatever

(substitute the actual paths and winetricks verb; if winetricks is installed from a distro package, you don't need the sh)

If you don't do that, Wine will update the wineprefix to your installed version when you run winetricks, then your wine-git Wine will update it again when you run the app using that version. That may not make a difference, but it does have the potential to cloud your test results.
