What do you mean by most of Wine?  I am trying to easily build all of
Wine from Windows.

I was able to build the whole wine tree on windows by running
$ ./configure --without-x --without-freetype && make depend && make
once I applied this patch and a previous one I sent:
winegcc: Find winebuild.exe instead of winebuild on windows.

I don't know if this is new behaviour. I do remember having trouble
building on windows before, so I gave up and tried cross compiling,
which now works without errors (no -k option needed for make).

I am using mingw, msysgit, msys, and some GnuWin32 packages, so it is
possible that it is a configuration issue.  I'll retry with only mingw
and msys.  I don't think they provide Flex and Bison though.
