What's the real problem? Why do you think you are missing DLL? If you just

real problems - just ignore these messages.

It produces zero fixmes, errs because it suppress them by default (you need
to use --verbose to turn them on).
If you like to see only information about missing DLLs (if any) - this is
possible with WINE by exporting this environment variable:
Then run WINE as usually, for example:
If you want this (or any other) environment variable to be the default you
need to edit your /etc/bash.bashrc (if you are using bash) or /etc/zsh/zshenv
(if you are using zsh) accordingly (just add above line with WINEDEBUG
variable somewhere in the config file).
In real world in most cases you don't need to worry about missing DLLs - just
install and use your program(s). In case if you find that you are
missing "typical" DLL I recommend you to use winetricks (
http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks ) to install them.
If you don't missing any DLL (or you are missing internal application's DLLs
that failed to install properly for some reason) and application don't work
as it should file a bug report at http://bugs.winehq.org so we can fix your
