Everyone keep saying this, but every time I try to run wineinstall, I
get errors about missing scripts that I haven't been able to figure out.

./configure: line 88: No such file or directory
./configure: line 89: No such file or directory
chmod: failed to get attributes of `': No such file or
./configure: line 201: conf2239.file: No such file or directory

Running ./configure, etc., etc. always works. I've looked at the
winetools script, and there's nothing really special about it that I can
see. Why is this the preferred method? Anyone have any ideas about these
errors? Any help/suggestions will be appreciated.
