Actually there used to be a reason to do that, when dlls needed to be
in the Unix library path to get loaded properly. The default was to
add symlinks in /usr/lib, but it wasn't very clean to have a bunch of
dlls in there so it made sense for packages to put everything in
/usr/lib/wine instead and change ld.so.conf. However this is fixed
now, and today there's no reason to change the standard layout.
