If you are compiling Wine yourself, then you generally need to have the 
header files for things like tls installed (normally the devel package). 
That goes for almost everything else Wine uses. "configure" checks for 
the existence of these headers, and uses them when compiling. There may 
have been a message printed out when running configure. Check the 
config.log file that was generated, especially the "Cache variables" 
section near the bottom.
