Not necessarily. Some folks are looking for a solution to run their
'favorite' Wine programs on non-X86 platforms that are compiled to run
on an x86 platform. Wine cannot 'make this happen' and never, ever
will. You need some sort of (platform CPU) <-> x86 processor emulator.
This is outside of the scope of the Wine project, but for an example
take a look at the Darwine project (if it is still available on
Sourceforge) for an example on how to try.

Work is ongoing to make Wine compile on ARM, this is true.

Qemu is an emulator, if I recall correctly.
