wine overstepping the mark?

I tried to compile wine-cvs on Gentoo and it got stopped during the  
install stage with a sandbox violation.

This is a gentoo feature protecting the system from software that steps  
outside its own territory. It seems that wine is taking it upon itself to  
mod the mimetypes for the whole system.

Is this an oversight or am I misreading it?

Sorry the output got chopped but you get the picture.
