wine won't build - inotify errors

Just trying to sort out some issues with wine and I originally used 
pkg_add I think to install it, now I need to ensure certain features are 
enabled like ssl connections and I need to be able to build wine from 
port source. The errors are as follows:

gmake[1]: *** [wineserver] Error 1

A quick poke at the sore point shows that there is a define around the 
declarations required. I think it should be using sys/inotify.h but that 
doesn't appear to be happening. Without a good dig I can't tell 
precisely what is going on, but I figured I might ask here in case 
someone knows either a workaround or can offer some points on what is 
going on.

FWIW it is technically a cross-build for i386 on FreeBSD 9.0 AMD64, and 
I'm using /compat/i386 to provide a base using chroot similar to linux - 
as outlined on the freebsd wine wiki. I considered using the amd64 
version, but I was running some other testing for i386 on amd64 as well.
