First pull out from CVS any version at all. Instructions at 
cvs.winehq.org. This is typically done using:
cvs -d :pserver:cvs at cvs.winehq.org:/home/wine login
(password is cvs)
cvs -d :pserver:cvs at cvs.winehq.org:/home/wine co wine
This will create a directory called "wine" in which the sources are 
extracted. You don't have to wait until they are all extracted. It's 
just important to get the directory out so that the CVS root is set 

Next, go to the newly created directory. Run "cvs up -Pd -D 
20-may-2004". Compile. Test. If it's working, split the difference 
between 20-may and 15-jun and try again. If not, split the difference 
between 20-may and 5-may and try again. Repeat until you find what patch 
broke your program.
