I'm not really a big fan of macports or any package manager that exists for Mac; Im more of a compile from source guy. Has anyone here tried compiling wine for OSX so that I can execute exe files on my OSX(10.6)?

Are there any alternatives for wine that you would suggest?

Package managers also build from source ;) The advantage is that they leave your system in a clean state... have a look at Homebrew: – Felix Apr 6 '11 at 18:58
