You are going to have to 'roll your own' as Mike is still building for
Tiger (10.4.11) and I don't think that XQuartz 2.3.3 will install on
this platform.  This would eliminate the need for his OpenGL 'hack' and
allow the full use of OpenGL functions currently supported by Wine.

I do.  I have installed Fink to grab the Required Dependencies, I am
using the build env that Mike has so graciously supplied and I installed
and upgraded XCode from the Leopard DVD.  You will also have to get the
X11 Software Development Kit (X11SDK) from the DVD and install it. 
Mike's builds may not require the use of Fink or MacPorts to build, but
I had already installed Fink for OpenOffice.org X11 (I go WAY back on
that project.)

Please read through the Wine on MacOSX Wiki page for more information.
