There should be much more than this.

Also, building Wine is MUCH more than just unzipping the tar.gz file and 
running a configure.  There are about 20 dependencies for building it.  
I recommend using either MacPorts or Fink to build it.  Ryan Woodshall 
also build a script that will download/unpack/configure/build all of the 
current dependencies for Wine.  This is the script I'm currently using.  
Be forwarned that building Wine will take about two hours and took about 
that amount of time on my shiny new MacBookPro.
