I just installed kubuntu 6.06 on a new laptop (no binary avail), AMD64.

Compiling wine failed as 4979 says, no libfreetype.so that is

The problem is not in the -L or in gcc or in wine.

The problem is in the m32 libfreetype. 
/usr/lib32 is searched (as /usr/lib/../lib32) by gcc automatically with

The libfreetype developer(s) provided
libfreetype.so.6.3.8 and 
libfreetype.so.6 ->libfreetype.so.6.3.8

However they forgot to create the symlink

  libfreetype.so -> libfreetype.so.6

Create this by hand in /usr/lib32 and regrettably wine still will not
as  4 externs are left unresolved: inflate, inflateReset,inflateEnd,

This appears to also be a libfreetype issue.  It's been reported several
times in various contexts, google for 'libfreetype inflate' to see them.

I don't have a solution, sorry.
