The Winelib tools (winebuild, winegcc, wrc, widl, etc) are actually used 
everyday and are under active development as they are used to build Wine 

What is not under active development is the tools to automatically 
convert Windows projects / source code into something that can be 
compiled using the Wine build tools. This is winemaker's task and André 
Hentschel has been recently submitting patches to add support for 
converting Visual Studio projects to regular makefiles (and I have been 
slacking on providing feedback, sorry). The other thing that's not under 
active development is the documentation.

But none of that should be an issue for someone writing a dsp/vcproj to 
SCons converter.
