packaging system are made to make user's life easier ;) so just remove
all wine packages first if you wish by doing, for example:
COLUMNS=150 dpkg -l '*wine*' | grep ii
this will give you list of installed packages
then, for all these packages:
apt-get remove <package>
or aptitude remove <package>
or whatever you like to remove a package.
(any GUI could also be use like aptitude curses UI, synaptic, ... please
refer to theirs respective doc for instructions)
Then you could install new wine package from GIT repository or anything.
Another way is to upgrade packages, just change some lines in
sources.list file then doing update and upgrade. See
Please note than both own compiled sources packages and binary packaged
ones could be installed at the same time (just run tje first from it's
own source dir)
