There is an old patch for linking a Winelib as an ordinary executable file on
There was also some discussion last year with the Mono people that suggested a
system involving the use of longjmp from a WinMain back to the "main" program
loop, which would ensure that Wine initialisation had taken place, although
this might create problems for exception handling, and you may have to
deallocate a bunch of memory Wine pre-allocates to make that system work.
Another technique would be to use a custom ctr0.o which caused a custom
WinMain to be called that then called on to "main", thus running the Linux
executable on the Wine stack.
Another approach would be to use the preprocessor to redefine "main" to
something else in your real "main", then have a "main" in a separate module
that called the Wine initialisation code, and a WinMain that called the
