To install wine from source, it's recommended that you run the 
$winesrc/tools/wineinstall script. However, I believe what you did works

As for not being able to find libwine.so.1, you could try running (as
root) 'ldconfig'. However, this should happen everytime you boot your
computer, so if you've rebooted and it still doesn't work then I don't
think that's the problem.

I recommend installing from source again using the wineinstall script,
as I had no problem using it. If you've kept your source directory in
tact already compiled, I do not believe it will build it again, just
install it.

I'll think about this some more, and if I come up with another answer,
I'll post it.

Good luck,
