You don't even need to install it at all. I have never installed Wine on
my system.

What I do is something along the lines of:

export WINE_ROOT=/home/fgouget/wine/wine
export PATH="$WINE_ROOT:$WINE_ROOT/server:$WINE_ROOT/tools:$PATH"

Actually I have a script that does the above and which I use to pick one
Wine tree or another (". wenv wine" or ". wenv wine2", etc.).

I also have a ~/.wine directory with a fake_windows configuration that I
reuse from one time to the next. I also have it tarred so I can in
essence "rm -rf ~/.wine && tar xvfz dotwine.tar.gz".

In theory, theory and practice are the same, but in practice they're different.
