To make uninstall:
rm -rf /opt/wine-cvs

To build and install:
./cofigure --prefix=/opt/wine-cvs
make depend
make install

To run:
Be sure /opt/wine-cvs/bin is on your PATH and that /opt/wine-cvs/lib is in 
your /etc/ld.so.conf.. that's IT.. why WOULDN'T you put Wine in it's own 
prefix under /opt or /usr or wherver you please.

Solves all of these problems.

Besides.. make uninstall is a broken concept anyway.. Who the hell would 
want to keep the sourcetree of a program around just so they could 
uninstall it properly?  Not I.
