I'm on Linux Mint Fluxbox CE 5 trying to compile the latest Git source.  I previously had Wine 1.0 something from the Synaptic repos, and wanted bleeding edge so I did 

$ aptitude remove wine

and then followed the Wine + Git instructions.  After the repo was cloned I ran ./configure, installed a couple dependencies and libfreetype-dev, and the config script then ran fine.  Then I started the make process, and after about 45 minutes of compiling and such (massive amounts of text ran by, if I need to salvage them you'll have to tell me how,) this happened:

$ make depend && make
gcc -c -I. -I. -I../../include -I../../include  -D__WINESRC__  -D_REENTRANT -fPIC -Wall -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wwrite-strings -Wpointer-arith  -g -O2  -o xvidmode.o xvidmode.c

Then I was dumped to the terminal.  Any one have any idea?  Should I even post this here, or is this a problem with non-wine stuff?

Thanks in advance.
