It's really easy, after you do your:
$ git fetch ; git rebase origin

every day, Monday - Friday, then do:

$ ./configure && make depend && make

To compile the newest version, simply do:

$ sudo make install

to install wine to /usr/local/bin. Assuming that is in your $PATH (it
most likely is), then you can again use
$ wine foobar.exe

as before. You can verify the version with:
$ wine --version

which will likely say something like 'wine-1.1.19-153-g55ad3fd'.
