Stephan, to get from where you are to where Eduardo is suggesting for the
alternate method was the issue I faced when I chose not to use "--with-nptl."
(I wanted to try the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL route, but didn't realize that this
would cause problems with building the registry in a no-Windows install.)

The workaround I found was to start wineserver manually once (to create the
server socket).  I could then run regedit or regapi to create the registry
(even though wineserver fell over).  From that point on, wine started

I agree with Eduardo that using --with-nptl is probably the better route, but
if you don't want to do that, try the trick above to create your registry, and
see if wine won't then start for you.
