You'd be better off compiling the whole source tree, in case the part
you're compiling depends on other parts of the tree. Once you've
compiled it once, you can recompile a specific part (e.g., just
gdi32), by cd'ing to its directory and running make there.

Submit it to wine-patches at winehq.org.
