MAKEing WINE on kubuntu 6.06?

I've just installed kubuntu 6.06 (dapper drake) on my athlon-64 system

I'm new to Linux, and there are a couple of Windows apps I would like to continue using for the time being, primarily Forte Agent. Naturally, I'd like to use WINE to enable me to use Agent, but I've hit a problem.

There are no compiled amd64 binaries of wine available for kubuntu. As far as I'm aware that means I have to download the source and compile it myself. I've never done this before, and I'm having some trouble.

WineHQ claims to have a source file (url deleted) at repository (url deleted), but neither Adept nor myself can find anything there.

They have a link to an older version at sourceforge
(url deleted)

I've downloaded and extracted this file, but then what do I do?

I've tried running make in the directory, but it claims there is no makefile. When I look at the directory in Konqueror, there is a file called aclocal.m4 which is supposed to be a makefile.

Upon browsing this forum for pre-existing instructions on building from source, I found:

Also, I looked at the sticky for this thread and didn't find any rules governing URLs. Can someone explain to me (I'm not a very frequent visitor here yet) why the URLs were deleted from this thread?
