ehitam is on a distinguished road

I'm new to mac development. I mostly used it for fun and games. I used Fedora Linux as my development machine along with Windows. I need wine for running some specialized text editors/IDE and to test so stuff. But there is no official pre compiled version of wine for Mac OS X.

They have given instructions here:
FAQ - The Official Wine Wiki

Looked clean and good until I encountered a fatal error.

I downloaded and correctly unpacked the tar ball. Save folder to Desktop and did this:

Harshvardhans-Mac-Pro:~ ehitamtech$ cd ~/Desktop
Harshvardhans-Mac-Pro:Desktop ehitamtech$ cd wine-1.5.0
Harshvardhans-Mac-Pro:wine-1.5.0 ehitamtech$ ./configure
checking build system type... configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one
I'm using Mac Book Pro with OS X 10.7.3

And most answers about it were overly dominated by linux community and linux specific discussion. They seemed to use --build command and specified target as Linux. What should be the Mac equivalent? How to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance
