Probably because they're not supported.  IE is considered harmful for web 
developers anyway:  It's noncompliance to the publised W3C standard and 
severe security concerns it presents to end users makes it unsuitable for 
human consumption in general, nobody should encourage this behaviour by using 
or accomodating IE.

That being said, if you're being coerced to use IE for employment reasons, a 
good place to look instead would be 
http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page .  Go pester them about 
this very unsupported and very seperate project instead.

If you tried to install IE in wine, it's not impossible that you destroyed 
your wine bottle; time to rm -rf ~/.wine and (restore it from your last daily 
backup|start over)...
