first you should uncompress it with

bunzip2 filename.txt.bz2 (where filename.txt.bz2 is the name of the file you wish to uncompress)

then you have to install the package

pkgadd -d filename.pkg

You have to be in the directory where the file is located.

find the package name (on second column):
# pkginfo | grep -i wine

and then remove the package (example if package name is WINE):
# pkgrm WINE

about your error I don't know (I don't use Wine) however you can try to build from source following some HOW TO (ex: Ritwik's blog: Wine on Solaris and Linux)
