I wanted to say that there is no config file at all included in the binary
package and I would think it a good idea if there would be one with some
basic (required) information in it. I think that is what a refer to as a
brand new config file.

Or did I miss something? Where can I get a brand new config file?
All I could find in the documentation was:
   If you just installed Wine for the first time and want to
   finish Wine installation by configuring it now, then you could
   use our sample configuration file config (which can be found
   in the directory documentation/samples/ of the Wine source
   code directory) as a base for adapting the Wine configuration
   file to the settings you want.

I have installed only the binary package (apt-get install wine). So I don't
have the soure code directories.
dpkg -L wine | grep config
finds nothing.
