This is because wine does not see your filesystem in the same way, for 
lack of a more technical description.  Z:\  is / on your unix fs.  If 
you wanted it installed to that folder it would be 
z:\home\fredrik\Wine_Applications.  You could even move it now that it's 
installed by:

mv /home/fredrik/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\Activision/GUN 
then link it
ln -s /home/fredrik/Activision /home/fredrik/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files

I believe would be correct.  Note that this after-the-fact move would 
maintain the folder structure that you might not want.  If the registry 
has key(s) for the game path you can alter it and just update the 
registry too.  Some games don't care what folder they're in, no way to 
know without first hand experience with it.

Good call on the directx, you do not want to install that in wine.  As 
for the debugger thing I know I've seen it referred to but I'm having no 
success finding it right now, I think it might be related to copy 
protection, from what I can find on the interweb it's protected by 
SafeDisc 4.60.  I don't think SafeDisc is support/implemented under wine 
either, but I may be totally off base.*
