You can't use GPL code in an LGPL project. You can use LGPL code in a GPL 
project by converting it to GPL.

Depending on what you're doing, this may not be a problem though, but if 
you're wanting to integrate GPL code into a Wine library, you'll need to get 
permission from the original authors of the GPL code to relicense it under 
the LGPL.
