No, I mean native. Some applications install native redistibutables,
e.g. msvcr80 or d3dx9_36.

Sure. I forget not everyone follows wine-bugs, so this was unclear.
See http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24510. Blur runs out of the
box, but if you remove the bundled native dll (being a purist) the
game fails, because wine is missing a dozen or so functions. There are
several similar bugs.
