Here's what I used to get it working: gave me

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
svn co
mv source winexe-source-2010.04.09
cd winexe-source-2010.04.09
make proto bin/winexe
sudo checkinstall -D cp bin/winexe /usr/local/bin/.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

On macports you need to configure --with-libiconv=/opt/local.

On the windows side, gave me:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  Click Start
  Right click on Command Prompt
  Choose Run As Administrator
  In the command prompt, run:
  sc create winexesvc binPath= C:\WINDOWS\WINEXESVC.EXE start= auto 
DisplayName= winexesvc
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

added some critical steps.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
1.  Enable Use Sharing Wizard

Click Computer
Click Organize and Folder and Search Options
Select View tab

This is the new bit.

Expand the following subkey:
If the LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy registry entry does not exist, follow 
these steps: 
On the Edit menu, click New, and then click DWORD Value
Type LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy, and then press ENTER
Right-click LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy, and then click Modify
In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK
Exit Registry Editor
Job done.  No need to reboot.

An important part of this is being able to get to shared disks
efficiently, so I can compile code on windows that I've been working on
on my mac.  With virtualbox, \\vboxsrv\ is the name of the built-in
sharing server.
