	It is better practice to use command wine --version. Also you probably want 
to uninstall binary package if you have it installed before installing from 
source. And of course you have to run sudo make install to install from source 
(but only after successful compilation).
	If you don't want install Wine compiled by yourself you may run Wine without 
installation directly from its source directory (for example by 
typing "./wine" without quotes assuming you are at the root of Wine source).

	You didn't include actual error (lookup for first error - it probably will 
help you find the source of the problem).
	Also make sure to run configure --verbose and satisfy all dependencies before 
	If still doesn't work feel free to ask for further assistance but don't 
forget to include first compilation error and everything after it.

	P.S. Personally I recommend to use Wine 1.1.8. It contains a lot of 
improvements and bug fixes.
