That should be enough, unless emacs does something funky with the first

I use
[mkdir ~/.wine]
cp <wine>/documentation/samples/config ~/.wine
joe ~/.wine

Substitute the path where you put the wine source tree for <wine>.

any text editor should do, but don't change the first line.  Oh yes, you
(or wineinstall or something) must create that ~/.wine directory first,
or the cp I used above will create a _file_ ~/.wine
