It doesn't hurt to copy all the DLLs over. But my suggestion is that in 
the ~/.wine/config file, you use the default settings that comes with 
Wine, which configures Wine to use mostly builtin DLLs:
"msvcrt"       = "native, builtin"
"mciavi.drv"   = "native, builtin"
"mcianim.drv"  = "native, builtin"
"msi"          = "native, builtin"
"*" = "builtin, native"

And then if a particular application is having a problem with a 
particular Wine DLL, then add a section for just that app to change the 
"oleaut32"     = "native, builtin"
"ole32"        = "native, builtin"
"comctl32"     = "native"
"rpcrt4"       = "native"
