You could try compiling from the FreeBSD source :-)

http://winehq.org/download/ links to
http://www.freshports.org/emulators/wine/ which is the Freshports
version, i.e customisations to the WineHQ tarball. I have no
experience installing a port, but it may be helpful to you to look
over their customisations to get it working on FreeBSD. (It might also
be useful for the Wine developers to see if the freshports packaging
contains anything useful to them in curing unnecessary Linuxisms.)
