Yes, please :) this would be really helpful . I must not be "wine
--show-config" but we should have the information about how wine
was compiled available in an installed wine and have an easy way
to put together all the important information about an wine
installation and a wine prefix so we can tell a user "Do foo and
give me the resulting file.".

There was already an attempt for some of this, see
