Don't use wineinstall - just do ./configure, make, and make install if
building from source.  Also, to use the current version of Wine on an
AMD64, you very likely will need to setup a 32bit chroot environment - I
have a friend working on a tutorial about how to do exactly that for
Ubuntu at the moment.

Hmm, that's strange.  Looking into it, there's something screwy going on
with the APT repository - the file is actually .tar.bz2, but the apt
Sources.gz file somehow came up with .tar.gz.  I'll try and fix it.
