> I can't say that I understand what you did in 100% but... whenever you get
source code of wine (or any other app) you MUST compile it first (build your
app). For wine follow this steps:

1.sudo apt-get build-dep wine (that should get all dependencies required to
build wine)

2.sudo apt-get install checkinstall (this tool will allow you to build .deb
package of wine after compilation)

3.(in wine source dir) ./configure && make depend && make

OR if your CPU have many cores:

./configure && make depend -jX && make -jX where X is numeber of cores your
CPU has

After (hopefully, successful) compilation just type:

sudo checkinstall

and follow instructions there - it should install wine at the end - if it
won't just install it by hand:

sudo dpkg -i wine_<something>.deb

Now you are all set, just type wine appname.exe to start something ;]
