apt-get says it all:

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  gnome-exe-thumbnailer icoutils libcapi20-3 libgif4 libmpg123-0
  libnss-winbind libodbc1 libopenal-data libopenal1 libpam-winbind odbcinst
  odbcinst1debian2 ttf-droid ttf-umefont ttf-unfonts-core unixodbc winbind
  wine-gecko1.4 wine1.4 wine1.4-common wine1.4-i386
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

Run sudo apt-get autoremove. Package wine1.4-i386, which holds the wine executable, will be removed.
