I guess that you have misread some info, but that switch was 
not needed (anymore ?) last I checked, if you are using CUPS
wine will automaticly setup the printer, if you use LPRng, 
LPD or some similair printing deamon, add a [ppd] section to
the ~/.wine/config and put "generic" = "generic.ppd" where
generic.ppd is the complete path to the generic.ppd file 
included under examples in the documentation.

(grrrr, I really need to get to updating wine documentation)
