The configure system is not robust enough to allow the changes you're 
talking off. If you change the options passed to ./configure, then you 
need to rebuild everything from scratch. Period.
Make distclean is even preferable to make clean.
Another options is to have one compilation directory for each set of 
options to configure you want to use (assuming you're running wine from 
the build tree).
