Wrong. WINEPREFIX points to ~/.wine directory - Wine's "configuration". Wine is not installed there. The directory you give to configure with "--prefix" is the directory Wine will be installed into on 'make install'. To use _that_ Wine installation you need to specify full path when running it. Example

./configure --prefix=/opt/wine_special
make depend all install
WINEPREFIX=$HOME/special_program /opt/wine_special/bin/wine special_program.exe
