I don't get an exact idea of the problem at the moment. I guess 
your "/usr/local/program/" (or any path up in the structure) has a 
corresponding wine drive letter in "winecfg"?

I prefer using only one wine-directory (like .wine in your home). Then adding 
a skript (e.g. start.sh) under .wine/drive_c/program/ which could contain:

### start.sh ###
WINEDEBUG=-all nice -20 wine /FULLPATHTOPROGRAM/program.exe

Then link to that script:
ln -s /FULLPATHTOPROGRAM/start.sh /usr/local/bin/DESIREDAPPNAME

This way you can always comfortably change your startup parameters, call the 
app from anywhere you want by typing "DESIREDAPPNAME" and you won't get 
complains about wine not being in a valid path.
