Major Winelib Problems

I followed the tutorial for Winelib on my Linux system, building notepad. I examined the file "./notepad2" with readelf, and it said "Not an ELF file", and I do not have an a.out system. I opened it with my text editor (attached is the text I saw) and I was disappointed. Instead of a real "port", it was just a shell script that launches wine on a Windows program encapsulated in a ELF shared object file. I'm not happy.
