Curious its been there for over two years does anyone object to having 
it removed?

The short answer is that it should not be required

This should work. A log of the relevant part of ./tools/wineinstall 
would be good.

Well to be case correct "Wine". I think this is a holdover from when 
wine "needed windows" so the drive would be "MS-DOS" as oppossed to 
"*nix" The label is irrelavant to wine but.(ahem) isn't "MS-DOS" a (tm). 
Anyways changing it would not hurt any objections or other suggestions?
