The Wine build did not fail on amd64. The configure messages are just

Perhaps you meant that Wine was built without support for openal. Yes,
but the lack of a 32-bit openal on amd64 isn't something the Wine
package can fix. There would be 3 solutions to this kind of thing:

1) The OpenAL package could perhaps build a 32-bit version of itself on
amd64 (probably unlikely to happen)

2) The ia32-libs package could ship the 32-bit version of OpenAL, just
like it ships almost everything else Wine needs; once that's done, the
next upload of Wine would automatically be built with OpenAL support.
(File a bug on ia32-libs for that)

3) Debian could finally start supporting multiarch. (Still waiting on

Of course, the same applies to gsm, mpg123, and such.

The configure warning about libhal/libdbus is probably also a bug in
ia32-libs, although ia32-libs does contain dbus and hal. Probably one of
the symlinks needed to build against them are missing or broken. From a
quick look, I think it's the libdbus.so symlink that's missing there.
