The issue is not with the compilation Vlad, the issue is that people on
the list need to understand the changes, and they need to discuss those
changes, to come up with a plan.

How to integrate it?  Where to send patches?  Will Wine take all the
patches?  Which patches they wont?  What is controversial?  Can we use
the same build?  Can Wine users have two builds?

As you can see there are plenty of open questions, and we need to
discuss those issues.  Hence our need to have patches.
