It turns out Wine has a workaround which allows it to not trigger this
(but once the registry file is broken, Wine is impacted too)

Excellent. I have updated the script to add support for adding OBS
repositories. It now uses the Emulators:Wine, windows:mingw:win32,
windows:mingw:win64 and home:dimesio OBS 'projects' to provide FAudio,
MinGW win32, MinGW win64 and vkd3d respectively.
I hope this can make it easy for openSUSE developers to get their system
set up to work on Wine.

There is no need for Emulators:Wine here since this is all in the main
repository anyway. It's just that fontconfig-devel-32bit should depend
on fontconfig-devel but does not. vkd3d-devel-32bit has the same problem
by the way: it should depend on libvkd3d1-32bit but does not (hint).

Wine's configure does not complain about libnetapi since it's a
relatively minor dependency. As for Mesa-libGL-devel-32bit I suspect you
have Mesa-libGL1-32bit installed and your page documents creating the
needed libGL.so symlink so that's why Wine does not complain about it.

I'm not sure it's no longer needed. I believe it's more of a case where
it's only needed for a few applications so one can get by without it.
But maybe I'm wrong.
