OK, thanks you all for the replies. Just for the archive the collected
answers were:

- have more than one installation of wine at a time for different
  windows programs
- including special patches as the one for playing Snood ;-)
- using a special distribution with no suitable packet at winehq
- compile optimizations

The reason I asked is that WineTools is not very good in coping with
self compiled Wine if this does not create a suitable .wine directory
during first call. If I have time I will fix it by providing a default
if none is created.
