What have you tried ? So far wine can only be compiled as 32-bit even on a 64-bit system, meaning that you need to have a kernel that has 32-bit emulation enabled and either a multilib distro or a 32-bit chroot, including 32-bit gcc and toolchain.

A good answer depends on your distro. Some distros, like Ubuntu, make it as easy as installing a deb file, as far as I remember. On Arch, you need to install it from the AUR. I don't know about other distros, but on each case, the wine binaries need to access 32-bit libraries to operate even in your 64-bit installation. Again, it depends on which distro you're using because each has a different method of providing the 32-bit binaries. You should try looking it up in your distro's wiki pages.

Wine will compile as a 64-bit binary. The problem is the x86_64 ABI is different between Linux and Windows. You should take a look at http://wiki.winehq.org/Wine64 for current status of Wine64.

one thing to remember tho is that you will be running 64-bit Window$ apps though wine64, not 32-bit Window$ apps.
