I suspect your use of the word "native" is different than the one 
defined by Wine (see, for example, 

Native DLLs, in Wine, are DLLs that come from a real Windows system. 
This as opposed to "built-in DLLs", that are DLLs compiled for Wine as 
winelib, carrying the
".dll.so" extension.

To the best of my knowledge, Wine arrives with no native DLLs at all, 
and thus one cannot remove any. Can you point to a bug report you might 
tag as "purist", so we can all get on the same page?
