Yes, sadly Apple did something that is breaking Darwine.  You will have
to add an Environment parameter to make it work.  See my other postings
on the gdi32.dll error.  I am working on building a copy of Darwine that
will automatically detect where certain libraries are installed and
adjust the parameter while running.
