It works for me on Mac OS X 10.6.8.  On which version of the OS were you testing?

I assume you did indeed build it with the prefix /usr/local and there is a /usr/local/lib/wine/  Is that right?

What output do you get from the following commands:

otool -L /usr/local/bin/wine
otool -L /usr/local/lib/wine/
otool -lV /usr/local/bin/wine | grep -A3 RPATH

Finally, in the development that lead to this patch, I noticed that the quoted "failed to initialize" trace only reports the error from the last attempt to open  Can you hack libwine to trace the error from each failed attempt?  Something like:

diff --git a/libs/wine/loader.c b/libs/wine/loader.c
index 302e9c1..bb5d8e6 100644
--- a/libs/wine/loader.c
