This section does not belong in the Winelib guide. The Winelib guide
deals with how to compile Windows applications using Wine, not how to
compile Wine itself.

This list of dependencies would fit better in the PACKAGING guide,
between the REQUIREMENTS and WINE COMPONENTS sections.
You could also add something like this to the REQUIREMENTS section:

    * A build system satisfying all Wine's soft and hard dependencies so
      that the resulting Wine package has all Wine's features.

You may also want to point to this section from the README's
'COMPILATION' section.
