RE: Elaboration in the current how to?

Welcome to Linux :).
I'll briefly touch on this because it is what it says on the tin, basically in the wine source directory (say /usr/src/wine-1.3.27) you just run;
./configure (which is a script in the directory) Once that is done you then just type in;
This compiles the program, make install actually installs it. you can run ./configure -h to see what options you can set with configure. For wine and this game I use;
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/wine-1.3.27rawevents (the --prefix sets where you install the program to).
Bottom line, these options above are good for a vast majority of open source programs. In every program you get the source code to (to compile yourself) you should have a README file. Check that out as well.
Hope this helps! Don't forget, for anything you come up against, google it. It really is your best friend.
