It's generated by configure at the root
level of your wine source tree, unfortunately
if the configure script stops at this level 
nothing but an empty file is generated, sorry :-/

You can trick configure by adding to
config.cache (create an empty file if
necessary) the following line


It will make configure think that the test has
already been done and succeeded. Then
you will see if the compilation succeed.

If it does, please report. There is something
to fix in configure then (btw do you use
recent wine ?)
