64-bit Wine is presently experimental. If you have a 64-bit app you
can't find a 32-bit version of, by all means test it out! But expect
to be reporting lots of bugs :-)

If you do need 64-bit Wine, you'll probably want to build from git
rather than use a tarball. This is geeky but otherwise reasonably
workable, particularly using ccache.

I understand a reasonably robust 32/64 Wine is one of the aims for
Wine 1.2 release.
