Good luck.  If you build from the source, please read past the QUICK
START to the requirements.  You need pretty much the entire Gnu program

install Wine in places that make sense to Mandrake, but they are
different from where Wine will ./configure itself to go (if you don't
tell it where you want it), and you can get an unusable hash of bits and
pieces of different versions.  You can ./configure it to install like
the rpm, or if you know how to work rpm, you can make your own
Wine-20010824-1mdk rpm, but it is simpler to just uninstall the old
before installing the new.  By default, Wine installs its libraries to
/usr/local/lib.  Add a line
