What are you trying to do?  We really can't advise you until
we understand why you're trying to build wine in mingw.
Please tell us a story about why you decided to try this,
and what you hope to get out of it.

Since I have no idea what you're trying to really do, and I've never
compiled Wine under MinGW or Cygwin, take this advice with a grain of salt:
You may be happier building under cygwin, which comes with bison.
MinGW is like a fork of cygwin.
Only difference is you'll need the --mno-cygwin option to the gcc commandline
to avoid linking with cygwin.dll.
