If you have the source, look into winemaker.  If you haven't the source,
how in the name of 13 basketsful of Devils are you going to port the app
anyway?  Throw it out and start over.

Wine is not just a program to load and execute windows binaries.  Mostly
it is a library with which you can compile and run source programs that
use the windows API using the native Linux Gnu toolchain.  Winemaker
knows better than I how to do it.

You get this letter by way of a little Winelib program winemaker helped
me with.
