I didn't install libfreetype6-dev:i386 myself because of what it wanted to remove:

build-essential dkms g++ gcc gcc-multilib libcairo2-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libgtk2.0-dev libpango1.0-dev libxft-dev nvidia-current

You will find the history of package operations in this file:


I've myself resigned from trying to build Wine on Precise and I'm building it from chroot environment (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DebootstrapChroot) and only the 32bit version. Than I move it to my standard 12.04 64bit.

Here (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wine1.4/+bug/944321) you will find Ubuntu bug report on this matter. Eric Pouech managed to hack his Precise in the way he could build Wine. From my point of view you're better off with Chroot.
