When you look at the configure.ac and the Makefiles, you will notice
that --with-wine64 only disables building some components). Because some
tools are needed in the build process, the pre-built tools from the
existing 64-bit installation are then used. That's pretty much it.

Just leave --with-wine64 out and you'll be fine. You'll just have to
make sure that fonts, tools, and server are only installed from the
64-bit build. (This is the part that is a little tricky to get right in
the package.)

As I mentioned, I had wine-1.4-based packages working a few months ago.

Most changes I made can probably just be cherry-picked, some need to be
adapted because of some patches that we applied to the package to make
it fit for release with wheezy. As soon as I manage to assign some time
to the task, I'll upload updated packages to experimental. I expect this
to be the case over the next week or two.
