Those instructions must be pretty old; the wineprefixcreate command was deprecated years ago. You also should not try to turn an existing directory into a wineprefix. 

If a wineprefix does not yet exist, Wine will automatically create it the first time you run Wine with that wineprefix specified, e.g., 

WINEPREFIX=$HOME/newprefix winecfg

will create a wineprefix called newprefix in your home directory, then launch winecfg.
