[pkg-wine-party] Proposed package cleanups

here are some changes to the wine packages that I would like to apply:
- Since the source tree has been patched, mainly for path changes, it
makes sense to switch to using source format 3.0 (quilt).
- debian/control already lists debhelper 9 as a build dependency, so I
adjusted the compat level accordingly.
- The Lintian-overrides have been re-added.
- Some cruft that is no longer necessary in the build has been removed
These patches so far introduce no incompatible change over 1.4.1-4;
the only differences in the binary packages are the Lintian overrides,
a different scheme for debug symbols, and localized versions of the
wine ("wine32", actually) manpage that had not been installed before.
The last patch does introduce a noticable change: It removes usage of
the alternatives system which we will not need for co-installable
I'd like to prepare a new version consisting of these packages and
upload it to experimental -- to keep a way of getting fixes for some
last-minute RC bugs through unstable before wheezy is released.
After that, I'd like to start figuring out how to put together a set
of packages that makes a WoW64 setup possible, at least on Linux. (To
my knowledge, wine can't be built on kfreebsd-amd64.)
