I suppose it's a headless server/workstation. Would using ssh X
forwarding be possible for initial run?

Else, unless you modify the default value in the source code for ttydrv
to be the default value, I don't see another solution than copying the
config from, eg., /etc/wine/wine.conf (I think the default is
${prefix}/etc/wine.conf), modifying the "GraphicsDriver" value while
copying (sed is your friend here).

Note that some of the DX dlls will have problems registering (via
wine.inf) with ttydrv. Ove has a patch for his debian packages to work
around that issue (which I also use for RH packages).
