Pardon me, but this kinda looks like wineg++ is not finding the compiler. 
Here's how it looks on my FC4 box with wine 0.9.7:

$ wineg++ -v q.cpp
g++ -fshort-wchar -DWINE_UNICODE_NATIVE . . .

You should investigate why wineg++ doesn't find what the name of the compiler 
is. It tried actually invoking an executable by the name of -fshort-wchar, as 
a session with truss would have shown ;)

Cheers, Kuba
