this means it didn't compile at all it looks like you are trying to follow windows installation instructions and then run it with wine. why? asfrecorder compiles and runs fine on linux without that stuff. I don't know where you got the source or the instructions but get them here:

compile like this (as stated in the documentation)
cd ASFRecorder/source
gcc asfrecorder.c -o asfrecorder
If you want to install it like a regular command available to all users do this as root:
(if you use 'su -' it will chage to roots home dir and this won't work so use 'su' or do everything as root.)
cp ./asfrecorder /usr/bin
then just run asfrecorder (or ./asfrecorder if you didn't do that last bit.) I guess the windows version has a gui, but it still works fine from the command line. it is possible you just tried 'make' but it looks like the makefile is windows only.
