Perhaps more simply, you can do
  cd ~/wine-git
  ./configure CFLAGS="-O2 -save-temps"
It should crash as usual, but this time you should see a pen.i file
laying around next to pen.o.
(Ignore the warnings about -pipe being ignored.)

Sadly, because of the way Wine generates its makefiles,
you can't just cd to dlls/winex11 yourself and do 'make pen.o',
it won't get the -save-temps option.

If you're not afraid of editing Makefiles, though, you can skip all the
above and do
 cd ~/wine-git/dlls/winex11
 vi Makefile   (and change -pipe to -save-temps)
 rm -f pen.o
 make pen.o
That's faster.
