This is effectively what i386-wine does: it bundles the required 32-bit 
libraries from a i386 host/environment and packages them such that they can 
run on an amd64 machine.

Correct, you should use the same port for both i386 and amd64, however if you 
are running Windows programs from /compat/i386 then there is no need to 
install wine on the amd64 host (unless you want to run 64-bit programs).

Normally CURRENT doesn't cause issues with wine, however STABLE will more, 
well, more stable.  I wouldn't base the decision of CURRENT/STABLE on whats 
best for Wine.  We do, however, need more people to test CURRENT.
