It may still be possible, but not without tricking the configure script.
In any case, you will need the 32-bit libraries eventually.

IIRC, the last non-multiarch packages of Wine had some features on amd64
missing because the libraries weren't there.

That's certainly the saner approach. For actually building packages,
you may want to consider sbuild.

What specifically don't you like about Multiarch? I find that it solves
the 32/64-bit problems with Wine quite nicely. And it also makes it
possible to build co-installable packages for a WoW64 setup. (This may
be done after the wheezy release.)
