The path that Wine uses is embedded in one of the ~/.wine/*.reg files. I 
think it can appear in either system.reg or user.reg, but for me at 
least, it is in user.reg. Look in that file for an [Environment] key, 
and under that key should be the "PATH" environment variable. It should 
be obvious how to modify it.
