This was recently discussed on wine-devel:

It concluded that there exists a couple of reasons why
glXChooseFBConfig might return NULL, but fortunately Wine can fall
back to ChooseVisual when it does.  I don't think anyone has coded a
patch yet, although you might want to check one of the commit logs.

You might want to chime in over on wine-devel with your GLX version, X
version, gfx driver version etc.
