Hi, Colin. 
I'm just another wine user (not a developer) and have never used Solaris, but I think you are missing dependency packages, whatever the configure script says. 
If you were a Debian user, you would first run as root:

  apt-get build-dep wine wine-dev

That your Solaris does not find git is odd, but I am wondering about putting it in /usr/local. With Ubuntu, git goes in /home/myname/wine-git. 

I'm sorry I'm not of more help.
