It is probably due to wine being compiled without OpenGL support.  I
would suggest downloading the 200107xx version of wine and reinstalling
it (not the newest one, it has a bug that keeps you from updating the
server list in HL).  When you install this using ./tools/wineinstall
(from the untarred dir) it should install with OpenGL support.  Be sure
you have opengl.h on your system before you try to install wine,
otherwise it won't have OpenGL support.
