Sorry I wasn't very clear - its not really a wine-users question per se - I 
want to be able to hack on Wine whilst keeping up-to-date with the version and need to know how to build it. I'm aware 
wineinstall runs configure - its configure that fails for me. It fails 
regardless of whether I run configure manually or through wineinstall so 
wineinstall is probably a red herring.

So, my question is: what is the correct way to rebuild Wine after 'cvs update' 
so that the configure *doesn't* fail? preferably without having to blow away 
the whole tree, re-check out and re-merge any changes which I've made to it?

I'm sure this must be a common problem but I can't figure out how to get 
around it - if anyone can tell me the right way to do this it would be really 

BTW I know its not my changes to my local Wine tree which break configure as 
I've changed nothing in that area (I've only added debug code to some bits of 
GDI which are giving me jip)
