It doesn't, for the same reason Emacs cannot be cross-compiled
targeting any other system: building Emacs requires running the built
binary.  As long as dumping Emacs is being used, it's also impractical
with Emacs.

AFAIK, running Emacs under Wine requires a specially-formatted
command, like "wine emacs.exe" or some such, so the build system needs
changes to support that, and so does CI.
