HUH? Wine is NOT installed there. This is Wine "configuration" ONLY!

Don't use that script. Manually compile Wine or you won't see what wasn't compiled properly 

./configure --verbose
make depend
make all
sudo make install

You can not mix and match self-compiled Wine and binary Wine installed from the package (unless you really know what you are doing).
