Turns out I could if I wished to. All you have to do is get the proper
symlink for your serial device
(http://www.winehq.org/site/docs/wine-user/config-drive-main#CONFIG-DRIVE-SECTIONS,
sec. 5.5.4).

Use the SA8 initialisation code defaults (GPS-> Initialize), and away
you go. My machine is indoors, so the receiver won't get a
fix. However, if you look at the raw data, you should see raw data
from the GPS going by.
