Mac yes.  However, it is not a native (Aqua) application, it uses X11. 
OpenVMS, if it is X86 based, maybe.  If it is Alpha, no.  Wine needs a 
X86 processor to run.

Correct.  Wine will not properly build out to 64 bits.  Windows does not 
either (completely).

List is quite long.  Most Linux Distributions come with Wine or have 
Wine available for them.  MacOSX (through the Darwine project and some 
other work) for Intel Macs ONLY.
