I have removed all dependencies that are optional and made them
makedepends, the wine package now has all the features it can have but
are going to be enabled by the user, installing the corresponding
package. For example, alsa-lib,, freeglut and libungif are now
makedepends, but I made a wine.install that tells you which package is
needed for which feature.
