He replied in more, rather unfriendly, terms and essentially brushed off my replies to his queries and abruptly closed the bug. I understand what he is trying to say to me (in terms of what I should do to provide more helpful information in a bug report) but I am particularly disheartened by the inappropriate and distasteful tone and wording with which he replied to me. My question is, then, where and to whom could I file a complaint regarding this individual's behavior in Wine's bugzilla?

Yes, you can build Wine without many options, but if you want to report
a bug, it has to have all of the options built or some functions may not
work properly. I've been the victim of this with other programs.
