[Wine] Should I report my problem in Bugzilla? Outcast problem.

This is a frequent problem, that's hard to resolve. The problem is
that the libraries you have installed are 'too new' and the configure
file isn't recognizing them. Not too much you can do, other than
trying to compile a newer version, and/or downgrading your entire
system. If you have a spare machine/partition, you could try
installing hoary/breezy and see if it will compile there.

You don't need to remove the binary unless you're going to do a make
install. If you just want to run wine from the git directory, you can
have both installed. Just be sure to call the right wine when you want
to run a program. Use:
$ /path/to/wine-git/wine program.exe to run from git directory
$ wine program.exe to run the binary wine
