Good point. Situation is not too bad though. Wine source is not gcc
specific, so we can invoke whatever compiler ./configure detected.
It's true, we're currently passing -fshort-wchar and -fPIC which
are gcc specific, but we cat easily test for these things in
./configure, and add them only if the compiler supports them.

To summarize, here are the gcc-specific dependencies that I see:



It is easy to just use what ./configure figures out instead. 
I know, if we do that winegcc will be forced to use the same
compiler that was used to build Wine. It's a bummer, but also
kinda theoretical problem for now, as all binaries are build
with gcc. I think we can worry about this issue when it does
become a real problem.
