Offhand, I don't think winelib lends itself to use as a static
library. We're rather heavily wedded to dynamic linking,
more so than in the past.
How bad would it be, really, to depend on the wine package?
I'd be happy to help you think through the obstacles
and see if that would work for you.
(The Linux Standard Base people ask occasionally if Wine
belongs in the LSB. If it were, you wouldn't have to worry
about Wine being installed. Maybe next year Wine will
be indispensable to make it to that state...)
