You don't need to, and you shouldn't.  msvcr80 is a prickly
beast, it doesn't just want to be copied, it wants to be gently
placed in a specially named directory.  But fear not!  winetricks
installs it perfectly well.  Looky:

$ rm -rf .wine
$ sh winetricks vcrun2005
Install of vcrun2005 done
winetricks done.
$ find .wine/drive_c -iname 'msvcr80*'

See?  Try exactly those steps and I bet you'll see it installed fine.
