AFAIK there isn't a specific utility to do this but it is easy to do. 
Unfortunately using windows dlls work ensure that all windows apps always work 
and can - in some circumstances - break compatibility. The best thing to do if 
you definetly want to go down this route would be to copy the system & system32 
folders from a currently installed XP and leave wine to choose which 
native/builtin dll to use.
