Patch for wineprefixcreate to allow nonstandard PREFIX installations

I am installing wine in a nonstandard directory (i.e. PREFIX).  Wine is
designed to support this, with helpful environment variables like WINEDLLPATH. 
wineprefixcreate is also designed to support this, internally using $datadir,
$dlldir, and $bindir to remove any hard path dependencies.  However, there is a
bug.  In 0.9.59, wineprefixcreate will not find the fonts directory, and
therefore will die with an error before actually creating .wine/.

Patch attached.
