Wine doesn't provide any of those specific dlls for dx9.  It is the
position of the development team that they are part of the game and
not part of the core directx and need to be shipped with the game.
What you need to do is find a copy of it on the internet and save it
into the same directory as the game exe you are playing. This will
mean it will only be used for the game you're playing and not clutter
your system32 directory.
