Once a day, quisquiliae head-node (attempt to) build winetest.exe (and also
the other Wine .exe and .dll files). Some details about this are available
The cron script builds winetest.exe and checks whether it has changed since
last time. If so, registers the new build.
(This is a slight over-simplification.)
There are some notes on how to build a Windows PE cross-compiler available
There is also a script that automates building the cross-compiler. Wine is
written exclusively in C, so by default, only the C frontend is built. The
script should support building other language frontends, but this hasn't been
This page also includes a set of patches for MinGW's Win32API package to allow
MinGW to compile winetest.exe. This patch-set is almost exclusively the work
of others: Stefan Leichter featuring most prominently (many thanks!)
Hans Leidekker maintains a set of RPMs that should provide identical coverage
of Win32API as Stefan, Hans, myself and others share the set of patches.
Hans' RPMs are available from:
