thanks for the help...
This isn't for normally running Wine. If it was just a normal install on the hard drive for 1 person it wouldn't matter as much, though it still does...
I'm trying to get rid of the message because its super annoying on how I'm building Wineskin (wineskin.sourceforge.net). Every time a Wine version is changed for testing, a wineprefix is copied, or a finished wrapper is copied out for an export... Wine always prompts about Wine gecko. 99% of the things that will be run in Wineskin do not need gecko.
the wineprefix is inside of a Mac .app, and every program has its own (usually). For programs that do not need gecko, installing Gecko into the prefix wastes 30mb per .app (from 10mb prefix to a 40mb prefix).... when you have 15 apps (mostly games) thats 450mb being wasted of Gecko install files that are never used...
I realize I'm using Wine a a rather non-standard way... but even for people that use multiple wineprefixes on their own, to install gecko into all of them is a big waste of space.
