The libmpg123-0 package was not present on my Ubuntu 9.04 box. The
licensing issues still apply for mp3 support.
If wine does want to go down this route, it would probably be better
to use the GStreamer interface rather than an mp3 library directly --
that way, it doesn't matter what mp3 library they are using, and also
supports them (for example) using the Ubuntu codecs pack or the
Fluendo codecs (not sure if these are the same thing).
A quick google search indicates that GStreamer is supported on the Mac.
