Wine needs to be compiled as 32bit. It won't work as a 64bit program. In short
windows programs are 32bit, a 64bit Wine would only be able to run 64bit
programs and for which we don't have support (yet).

I have no FreeBSD experience but it means that you need to install 32bit
libraries, compiler and so on. Further I believe that there are serious
problems running Wine on FreeBSD. For proper Wine support on FreeBSD you need I
think the latest kernel with 'thr_kill2' support. Further you need Wine 0.9.44
with some patches. I think I saw those on wine-patches but those haven't been
committed yet. You would need to apply them yourself.

So get 32bit stuff and you also need to upgrade your kernel and more if you
want to run Wine.
