Hmm, you can't tell wine to do anything without compiling it first... 
and the answer is no anyway. (Well, technically, you *could*, if you 
were able to build Wine, but there's no good reason to. "It won't work" 
is an understatement.)

Make sure you pass --disable-win64 to configure. Set CC="gcc -m32", 
CXX="g++ -m32", and maybe set --host as if cross-compiling to i386.

There's a check early in configure.ac that sets -m32 and such 
automatically if the canonical host is x86_64*linux*. Consider 
submitting a patch to wine-patches that does the same for BSD.
