All you have to do is run the install script. I think it is called or install-sh. I am really tired right now and can't thin too strait. But I think the install script does everything for you.

normally if an unpacked directory contains something like 'configure.SOMETHING' then typing
will do the magic. Alternatively you might need to make the file so typing
should work in such case.

Checking the wine site is also a good idea because sometimes the requirements are higher than standard, i.e. it happened to me that I downloaded Knights-chess and after checking the requirements I found out that those versions of automake and autoconf were not the ones that came with my Mandrake 9.1 so updating was needed.....
