Install latest Wine [1.5] version on Debian

I don't know why debian loves wine v1.01 ?? an obsolete version of wine. They don't upgrade to the next stable versions. The doesn't provide .deb packages for squeeze too.
So here's the way, I've just installed  the latest version of wine on my squeeze ! Just remember that compiling wine from source takes ~ 1h of time...

apt-get build-dep wine
cd /usr/src
tar -jxf wine-1.5.25.tar.bz2
chown -R nobody:nogroup wine-1.5.25
cd wine-1.5.25
sudo -u nobody ./configure
sudo -u nobody make
make install
