You have a few more problems than you dream with this path.

wine build tools are designed for porting applications to other platforms.    

There is a feature missing from wine.  http://wiki.winehq.org/WinePluginApi .  This feature would be required to allow native Linux programs to run segments in wine.  Using Win32 API requires a very particular memory structs and services to work.

Currently you are forced to do the following.  Code application like windows application build a wine exe.so for program with calls out to Linux binaries.

Unless of course you fell like bring WinePluginAPI into existence. 

If you are really aiming to make Win32-API applications you are looking for mingw version of gcc not wine build environment by the way.

Also if not aware any binary built using wine own build environment is not windows compatible.
