I'm not buying this unless you using the wine-1.1.12 release (which is broken).
Just try one simple thing which should work:

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-test wine iexplore http://winehq.org

If this won't ask you to install wine-gecko, then your Wine is really broken. You should either revert back to wine-1.1.11 or use current GIT version or wait for wine-1.1.13 (due to be out this Friday).
