The compliance requirements for software build tools tend to be rather easy
to meet, so Wine shouldn't have any real problems there.

Having said that, Wine is actually surprisingly capable these days. It
won't always run the latest release of our all-time favourite WYGIWYD
character pushing or number layouting programs from MS-Office fame, but at
least older versions of many a program tend to work rather nicely.
