The Wine Wiki page on this has a nice How-to

Still needed.
I just tested it again on 12.10 - many 32bit build dependencies
conflict with many 64bit packages (and some of those are dependencies
of packages unrelated to Wine...)
Thus, building it without a chroot in a "clean" way is not yet possible.
Also, building with both sane and tiff support is problematic:
libsane-dev wants libtiff5-dev, which conflicts with libtiff4-dev (the
one that wine wants)
