installing wine

I need to install wine in my home directory on a computer for which I do not have root access. The problem is, the computer uses an old version of freetype. I buiilt the current version of freetype in my home directory. But I can't figure out how to configure wine to use the new version of freetype in my home directory rather than the old version installed in /usr/local on the computer. Any ideas how I might do this?

You will have to compile it, not just install it.

Instead of doing just a ./configure, you will have to do ./configure --prefix=/home/user/wine and look at the rest of the parameters you can use, specially for the freetype you installed in your home directory (./configure --help).
