Questions about winemaker/winelib should be directed to the wine-devel list.

No, you still need Wine. Winelib/winemaker are really only useful in 
porting apps to a non-x86 platform. And now that Macs are x86, and 
SolarisX86 is (once again) freely available, the usefulness of winelib 
has dropped considerably in my opinion.
