Well, actually I did try it some time back ...  

While I just did a quick hack, I got at least WineMine running.
Now that Winelib is a bit cleaned up (Sparc runs out of the box),
it would probably be not too difficult to properly implement S/390 
support, or in fact support for any 32-bit architecture (64-bit is 
an entirely different story).

I didn't pursue it further because I wasn't sure there's really
anybody interested in running Wine on S/390.  But if you'd like
to try it, I could certainly contribute the arch-specific patches.

[ B.t.w. I'm now working for IBM on the Linux for S/390 port.
  That's why I am quite familiar with the architecture ... ;-) ]
