Which version of Wine have you downloaded (and from where)? Which Linux distribution are you using?

I have downloaded Wine-20040813.tar.gz from winehq.com which i tried to install on Linux Redhat-9....
I kept my system on for whole night after office hours thinking that it will proceed further ... But the next it was all then and there ...
Is there anything wrong with configuration file of wine ??  If yes please tell what to do next to get out of that halt...

This should have worked. It's possible that something that is required by the wine build procedure is not installed on your system. Do you know that you can also download a compiled package for RH 9 from the same site? If you don't have any special requirements, you should install the compiled package.
