Yes and no. valgrind still doesn't support many instructions...

Have set and exported __GL_FORCE_GENERIC_CPU=1 else it will crash much
earlier. Seems to me that the native DLLs which I need to run
Morrowind contains some non-486 instructions. Does anyone knows
whether it's possible to tell these DLLs that we only have a 486 ?

Output of valgrind is attached.
