What "system files" are you referring to? At one time in the distant
past Wine had a config file. That has been gone for quite a number of
years now. Any Wine "configuration" is now done in the registry. These
files are typically ~/.wine/system.reg and ~/.wine/user.reg, though that
location can be changed with the WINEPREFIX environment variable.

Wine uses "builtin" DLLs from some directory, which is commonly
/usr/lib/wine (as determined by the packager for the Wine package you
installed). It gets "native" DLLs typically from
~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32, though this location can be changed in
the registry. What makes you think it is using some other locations?
