FWIW, I get the same on powerpc:

austin at gcc40:~$ WINEDEBUG=+process,+wineboot ./wine-git/wine
./wine-git/programs/wineboot/ 2>&1 | tee boot.txt
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/austin/.wine'
trace:process:init_current_directory starting in L"Z:\\home\\austin\\" 0xc
trace:process:CreateProcessW app
L"C:\\windows\\system32\\wineboot.exe" cmdline
L"C:\\windows\\system32\\wineboot.exe --init"
trace:process:open_exe_file looking for L"C:\\windows\\system32\\wineboot.exe"
trace:process:CreateProcessW starting
L"C:\\windows\\system32\\wineboot.exe" as 32-bit Winelib app
err:process:start_wineboot failed to start wineboot, err 1359
trace:process:__wine_kernel_init starting process
trace:wineboot:pendingRename Entered
trace:wineboot:pendingRename Value not present - nothing to rename
trace:wineboot:ProcessRunKeys processing L"RunServicesOnce" entries under HKLM
trace:wineboot:ProcessRunKeys done

and it just hangs there, using 100% cpu, never timing out.
