IMHO, wine-cvs with all packages is not a good idea.
I'm testing xubuntu and i do not want to install kde/gnome.
Using multiple packages (wine-kde-cvs / wine-gnome-cvs / ...) are hard
to maintain.
And what about the different audio-driver?
Even more difficult is the OpenGL-Part (mesa / nvidia / ati)

I split the List in the Wiki to make clear, for which dlls which
packages are needed.
The split is not complete yet, and IMHO the List is also wrong
(examples: libusb-dev, libqt3-mt-dev)

Feel free to update Fedora similar.
