You have to make sure that the locale you are trying to use is there
in your system (see locale -a). My corrent lcale is ru_RU.UTF-8 and
wine runs correspondingly. When I run

LC_ALL=C wine regedit
LANG=C wine regedit
LANG=C wine winecfg
LANG=C winecfg

It all works: wine starts displaying all dialogs in english. This
works well with precompiled binaries also.
