   If your application does not need the MFC under Windows, then there
is no reason why it would need it with Winelib!

   I assume that your code is very CPU intensive, in that case its
performance will be strictly determined by the CPU you run it on. This
also means that its performance in Wine or Winelib should then be
strictly identical to the performance under Windows. Even applications
that make a lot of calls to the Win32 API generally have a performance
that is very similar in Wine and Winelib to that in Windows.
