Of course he can, if Wine is just a user of mpglib, the 
LGPL makes no claim on users only and even if it
did HIS code can still be under the X11 license.

We have discussed this before and at the very least everybody seems
to agree on that unless the LGPL code depends on Wine everything is fine.
The mpglib obviously doesn't depend on Wine and that's it.
