OK, I still don't know whether installing dx9 via winetricks is necessary or not but now there is possibly a new problem.
I deleted my .wine tree and started again. 
1) Installed msxml via winetricks
2) Installed Civ4 from CD
3) Installed dotnet20, corefonts and vcrun2003 via winetricks
4) Installed BtS fromCD
5) Attempt to install 3.17 patch fails after clicking finish and hangs waiting on a pipe after choosing not to report the problem. The wine output is:

Trying to start the game after this still results in the "failed to initialize renderer" error.

Any ideas why the patch install fails?
