These types of questions should be sent to the macports-users mailing list. That's where we can help you use MacPorts. You need to subscribe to the list before you can reply; to do so, go here:

After you've subscribed, when you reply to this message, use your email program's Reply All function (not the Reply function) so the reply goes to the mailing list too.

I would suggest you do what the error message says, and clean the wine-devel port. You probably need to use sudo to do so, so use:

sudo port clean wine-devel

Then try again.
