OK, first you do have to make & install fst first, so that's cool. 

Second, I am running either Gentoo-2.6.9 or FC2 when I do any of this.
I don't know what the dependencies are for jack_fst, or why FC1/RH9
wouldn't be enough, but time marches forward and developers sometimes
grab stuff that's new.

I would presonnally say that even if apt wants you to upgrade 75% of
your FC1 installation, at least you are PlanetCCRMA based which makes
it about the safest update I know how to do. My inclination would be
to put myself in Fernando's capable hands and let apt or synaptic take
over. I expect that when you've done that everything will be just

Just stick with wine-20040505 for now. Also, my input is to rebuild
fst/jack_fst anytime you change wine since they seem to depend on wine
header files...
