Compile documentation problem

If Wine is going to enter beta soon then someone ought to document the 
procedure for compiling the source.  If FC is used to attempt such a 
compile and the instructions packaged with the source are followed the 
result will be a compile failure in fonts.  This is in spite of 
installing fontforge.  The fact that an additional library must be 
supplied should be mentioned in the installation instructions packaged 
with the source.  Of course, if the RH rpm of fontforge is used then it 
will fail to install because of the missing library.  Compiling 
fontforge from source or not installing it results in the Wine failure 
to compile.  The readme should be fixed.
