The default locations for a CVS version of Wine are:
binaries - /usr/local/bin
main libraries - /usr/local/lib
other wine libraries - /usr/local/lib/wine

There is normally no global config file. All user config and registry 
files normally go in ~/.wine. They should be correctly installed and 
setup by wineinstall (other than leaving floppy and CD entries in the 
config file that tend to generate extraneous messages).
