Using wine from git is enough. You could run it directly from the build 
directory. There is no need to install it. Make sure you have all 
dependencies available. Well if wine 1.5.5 worked in the past, version 
1.5.5 should also work from your own git build. If it doesn't work, 
check if your distribution has some patches applied. After that, you 
could run the regression test.
