You don't even have to specify a prefix if you don't do a make install
(i.e. you just do './configure && make' then run wine by specifying
the full wine path
like '/path/to/compiled/wine yourprog'

yes but compiling on a system and running on another can be
problematic, e.g. if some libraries are not installed on the
destination machine (or different versions, ...)
You should preferably compile on the destination machine.
