winetricks & DLL overrides

Hi Dan,

i'm happy user of winetricks and thanks for all that work. Today i
found out, that i wasn't able to reveal, that apps uses some native
dll  when using:

winetricks settings alldlls=builtin

further checking revealed, that winetricks(20120308) has several no
longer available dll override compared to winecfg and some are
missing, thus application uses them as native.

So i add/del dlls from override_all_dlls list based on winecfg
(1.5.3-164-gdec3d50) and the result is attached as a patch.

Probably unusable for you, because:
* no care about line length

* i do not know whether removing no longer available dll's override
is allowed (what's happen for users using old wine-1.0 and need
dlls's override no longer available in wine-1.5.3)

* shouldn’t be the dll's override in user.reg simply overwritten? As
i noticed the names are there twice - 2nd one with "*" prefix making
it confusing, which value will be used and the list in winecfg is
twice as long.

Thanks and regards,
