I had a similar problem after I went from a binary to a source install.
First, as you seem to have done, make sure all the old traces of wine
are removed. Then, remove the /etc/ file, and run ldconfig to
rebuild the cache. Then, in your wine directory, make sure you do a
"make distclean" before you try to compile. I had to wash-rinse-repeat a
couple times, but I finally got everything running again.
