OK, there is confusion about all of this. The config file existed,
pretty much as a requirement, up through maybe the middle of last
year. (I think.) Then the developers did away with the config file and
told us we could run without it. However it seemed that there were
many things that still needed the config file even though it didn't
technically exist anymore.

There used to be a sample config file in the source tree if you
compiled from source. There might still be but I think that portage
doesn't install that anymore. (If it ever did.) I cannot find it on
this machine.

Wine will talk to the network. Whether that's good enough for your app
I wouldn't know.

There is. It would be placed in the config file we cannot fine.

Just recently the winecfg app started doing more. There is a page
(Libraries) where I beleive you are supposed to be able to specifiy
dlls. I've not tried it.
