That's pretty hacky, and can break across different
distributions/versions of libc/etc.

To be honest, I think making a Autocad version of wine would be great.

Make a repository, keep it up to date with regular wine + DIB engine +
a few hacks for autocad.

Just be sure to make it clear it's not 'vanilla' wine, so bugs
shouldn't be filed against it without first verifying them in vanilla

Scott can probably help you with this. If not, let me know.
