How to install Wine 1.1.30 on ubuntu 9.10 64-bit

I've been trying to follow the FAQ on Wine's website but keep running into errors.

I want to install wine version 1.1.30

I have the .tar.bz2 file and need to compile it but am unsure how to get all the 32-bit dependencies needed for ubuntu 9.10

IIRC, running the command:
sudo apt-get build-dep wine
should install the packages you require to compile it. If I remember how build-dep works.
Alternatively, use Synaptic/Adept/Aptitude/other package manager to mark the main Wine package for installation, which will pull in each of the dependencies - then before applying, simply unmark Wine itself, and you'll have them.

I'd run the build-dep as well though, it should ensure you'll have what you need.

Edit: I think I was right, after entering that command myself - but be WARNED: There are a LOT of packages, I counted 46 when I did it - that added up to 143MB to download, and 318MB of HD space. If you're limited for space, don't try it, stick to the pre-build packages.
