compile error

Tom, Robert,

First and above all thanks for your kind answers. First time I post for
help (I usually get myself out of trouble by reading other people's q&a)
and I was touched by the "net magic"...

Installing the ia32-libs-dev package and running the uninstall / install
procedure supressed the compiler error message.

I now get an error when trying to run wineprefixcreate :
cp: cannot stat
`/wine/wine-0.9.11~winehq1/tools/../share/wine/wine.inf': No such file
or directory

winecfg is simply "not found"

under /usr/local/bin/ I only have:  wine  wine-kthread  wine-preloader

I reattach the config.log

Is there a binary package for the x86_64 bit architecture planned for a
not too distant future ?

With kind regards,
