OK, but that still works for me.  I configured with --prefix=$HOME/test1, I installed there, and tested.  Then, I renamed ~/test1 to ~/test2 and retested and things still worked.

(I'll also point out that none of the Wine library references incorporate absolute paths any more with my change.  So, even working when installed in the configured prefix dir is an indication that it's successfully finding libwine relative to the binary.  It has no other way to find it.)

So, can you provide the output from those commands (as applied to the files wherever you've moved them)?
