I had trouble with installing a program called WebEngine on 0.9.22, it 
turned out I needed to rm or mv my .wine directory to .wine.old, 
something I have not done since wine 0.9.10. I ran winecfg which created 
a new .wine and now webengine installs correctly. This may be worth 
trying, it's not always the binaries in /opt that could be the problem.
