It's good you are trying to build Wine. However, you need to install the 
appropriate development packages for Ubuntu first. Plain Ubuntu as 
installed from disks does not ship with enough tools to build any 
program in C. Also, most recent wine version as of this writing is 
0.9.59, so you are already a few versions behind.

You might want to try suscribing to the wine-users mailing list first. 
That mailing list is more appropriate for people who are starting with 
Wine and Linux than wine-devel.

perl -e '$x=2.4;print sprintf("%.0f + %.0f = %.0f\n",$x,$x,$x+$x);'
