OpenSUSE provides a daily Wine snapshot package in addition to the biweekly release packages, so if you want the latest git, you don't even have to compile it yourself. Their biweekly release package includes winetricks (don't know about the daily). They do this for all versions of openSUSE for which they still maintain repositories (currently goes back to 10.2), not just the newest one (currently 11.0). I've been using Wine on it for over a year, and have never had a single problem with either their packages or compiling Wine from git.
