Another update: It seems like your mileage in terms of how well Wine will work for you will vary using this method. It works fine for me and I suspect it's because I've built earlier Wine versions of my systems and have ia32-libs-dev installed. This package is no longer available in Testing. ia32-libs installs the libs you need, but does not provide symlinks between .so and .so.X files -- you can probably do that by hand if necessary though. It's not for beginners.
An additional thing to remember is that the 1.5 series of Wine is a development series -- 1.4 is the stable series which is meant for end users. Progress made in 1.5 will be included in 1.6.
NOTE: there are a couple of issues, and they will depend on how your system is set up.
* libosmesa6-dev:i386 will require mesa-common-dev:i386 which will remove libosmesa6-dev:amd64 and more, which is bad.
* libglu1-mesa-dev:i386 depends on libgl1-mesa-dev:i386 which will remove libgl1-mesa-dev:amd64 and more, which is bad.
* libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev:i386 depends on libgstreamer0.10-dev:i386 which depends on gir1.2-gstreamer-0.10:i386 which depends on gir1.2-freedesktop:i386 which depends on gir1.2-glib-2.0:i386 which depends on libgirepository-1.0-1:i386 which will remove a whole lot of packages (132 on one of my systems, including gnome, gdm3 etc.)
I'm working on figuring out what's triggering this on some systems but not others.
In the mean time see http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/308-compiling-wine-1521-on-debian.html to see how to build wine in a chroot, which is safe. You can then install that .deb package on your normal system and HOPEFULLY there won't be any broken dependencies. You won't need the -dev:i386 packages on the install target.
ldd `which wine`so you really don't seem to need much in the way of shared libs installed.linux-gate.so.1 => (0x55573000) libwine.so.1 => /usr/local/lib/libwine.so.1 (0x55576000) libpthread.so.0 => /lib32/libpthread.so.0 (0x556ec000) libc.so.6 => /lib32/libc.so.6 (0x55705000) libdl.so.2 => /lib32/libdl.so.2 (0x55867000)
A new incremental version of wine is out.
There's little difference between building 1.5.21 and 1.5.22 but here it is anyway. The build is very easy on an up-to-date installation of Testing/Wheezy. If you are on stable, the list over needed packages can be found in this post.

where 4 is the number of cores on your build machine (see here and here for -jN). The build took 13 minutes on a three-core AMD Athlon II X3 445 (3.1 GHz) with -j4. The 'Copying files to...' can take quite a while, so let it run to completion.
Anyway, that's it. An easy build.
