Gentoo builds everything in some sandbox in /var/tmp and then copies
everything in the right places. Wine seems to think files will stay in
that directory altough they won't. However I'm quite sure everything
will work as expected.

IMO you should open a bug in gentoo's bugzilla telling them to apply a
patch that removes this warning before to build wine as this warning
doesn't apply to gentoo users.

Altough it can seem crazy to compile everything from scratch, I never
had to fix any paths in under gentoo; if something works well
under gentoo, that'd be the emerge process configuration update tool.
