Please see:

The paper - dated 2002 - is general and is not Arduino specific.
And, yes, wirewrap is tedious. But it works.

Recovered/recycled (and new) IDE headers do not lend themselves to 
wirewrap and would have to be soldered.
Wirewrap DIP sockets are available. One can wirewrap to discretes but 
a touch of solder is recommended because the leads are round and do 
not secure the wrap the same way square pins do.
