Well, yes (  :D ) there is a patch of current GIT tree (today 24/01/2009) with an updated testing dib engine.
Just fetch git tree, patch it with


patch -p1 < DIBENGINE.patch

rebuild wine and enjoy it.
BEWARE, DIB Engine is disabled by default, you can enable it by environment variable (export WINEDIB=ON) or by registry (HKCU/Software/Wine/DIB Engine/Enable set to 'Y', use regedit to create the key and set the value)
Still much to do, but impressive improvement on truetype font display.
BTW, some almost unnoticeable slow down of other graphics, due to absolutely unoptimized code, and some ugly results on icons (see layer command) due to missing ROP operations in blitting.

Tested ONLY on AutoCAD 2005, NOT 2008; btw it works also with most other apps.
