Linux softwares are C codes. So they need to be compiled before they are installed. Wine is also a Linux software. It needs to be complied before it is installed, for this purpose you need a C compiler installed in your system. GCC is a C complier. To check whether GCC is installed in your system or not just type gcc in Terminal and press Enter. If it is installed in your system You will see "gcc: no input files" If you see "gcc: Command not found" that means GCC is not installed in your system. So you need install C complier(GCC) before you install wine.

What distribution you are using?
I think the easiest way to install wine is using the wine package of your distribution.

To compile wine, you have to install lot of other libraries. However, if you would compile it by yourself look here WineHQ - Installing Wine from source for a user guide.

I guess you are installing WINE from source....
If you are trying to modify WINE and contribute then do so
ELSE Install Binary package for your Distribution.
