First, there is no need to do an initial build cycle. You can do this:

git clone...
git bisect start
git bisect good <tag>
git bisect bad <tag>
./configure (additional configuration tags go here)

Then run wine from the directory where you built wine.

If the program runs, the next step is to mark the bisect good. If the 
program does not run, mark the bisect as bad. Repeat until the entire 
process is done. Then you have to do ONE MORE run of bisect. You will 
receive a message that the first bad commit is ..... You can remove the 
commit and then try another build. It is interesting that some problems 
have multiple origins based on several code additions/changes/deletions.

Did you read the Regression Testing page on the Wiki. It says what I 
just said above.
