Winelib MFC?

When you would recompile your app using winelib, it becomes a so called
"winelib" binary. The app still depends on Wine, the only difference is that it
isn't a native windows binary anymore.
Something an MFC app on Linux is a bit tricky, since you would need to build
MFC for Linux (using the MFC source which is shipped with some versions of
VStudio). Building it can be hard and not sure how the license is...

I wouldn't port the app to winelib in your case since the only reason you
are doing it is not to depend on Wine. Having it not depend on wine is not
