The 'brokenness' of X11 on the Mac is NOT the reason that there is no 
downloadable version of Wine for the Mac (PowerPC or Intel.)  The fact 
that the Darwine project is NOT a part of the Wine project is.  Thus, if 
you want to download a copy of Wine for the Mac, you should visit the 
Darwine project or MikesMassiveMess.

The Darwine project does not carry Wine source code and the 
create_darwine_distrib shell script goes to the Wine repository for Wine

Details on your computer?  What processor does it use and what version 
of MacOSX are you using?

Again, which version of MacOSX and what machine type, PowerPC or Intel 
are you trying to build Darwine on?
