Would this mean problems with the program running, or compiling it?  I
am struggling a bit with an application (the installer needs
administrator rights) under FreeBSD 4.9, but have not tried to run Wine
from a Linux machine insteaed.  It seems that wine runs without other
troubles, though, but maybe this is worth a short anyway?
