X11 installations are only necessary for MacOSX 10.4 or lower.  MacOSX 10.5 (Leopard) comes with X11 pre-installed.  However, the MacForge project XQuartz is assisting Apple with upgrades to the X11 product, adding features not included, fixing features not properly implemented and adding with version 2.4, OpenGL 1.3 libraries.  Their product installs on top of the X11 provided by Apple, not in replacement of.  Thus, if you are conducting any sort of X11 development, including Wine, you should 
install the X11 Software Development Kit (SDK) before installing XQuartz.

To run Wine for the Mac on your system, it is not necessary to install the X11 SDK.
