Correct, wine will compile and run without a lot of features and never
warn you that they don't exist.  See this wiki page for an example of
what your include/config.h file should probably look like:


I just added the Fedora Core 5 and Ubuntu Dapper sections yesterday,
and I believe that they are at least 95% accurate, although I might
have missed one somewhere.  If someone can add the package names
required for a gentoo build (or possibly create and maintain wine-cvs
packages with all of the necessary deps???), it would probably help
out many users trying to compile from source.
