Well, here is what you asked for:

[john]: 08:54 PM  [~/Documents/wine-20040914]
$ ./configure
checking build system type... tools/config.guess: unable to guess system type
.****lines deleted

configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

*******  Now I do it again by specifying build type

[john]: 09:00 PM  [~/Documents/wine-20040914]
$ ./configure --build=i586
checking build system type... i586-pc-none
checking host system type... i586-pc-none
.*** there are umpteen lines deleted 
config.status: executing windows commands
Configure finished.  Do 'make depend && make' to compile Wine.

****As you can see configure no finished without any error message

[john]: 09:03 PM  [~/Documents/wine-20040914]
$ make depend
cd ./tools && make `basename tools/makedep`

Interesting observation: The missing config.h is in the form of 'config.h.in' in the dir ../include
