One item, Mike builds for Tiger, not Leopard.  I have built on Leopard and will, again, attempt to get the file uploaded to the same site that hosts Mike's builds.

This is a shortcoming of OpenGL on Tiger (you cannot install XQuartz builds on Tiger from what I gather on the XQuartz site that has the OpenGL fixes and server updates.)

How are you launching the programs?  Through a link or by changing to the install directory and then launching through Finder?  The suggested method is to use terminal and then lauch using the wine <program.exe> command and this is outlined in the Wine FAQs as well.

I've installed Fink and loaded the dependencies needed to build Wine.  I then used Mike's build environment to build Wine on Leopard.  I then installed it and ran Final Doom (which crashed with Mike's builds.)  The program ran well once I set it up to use Windowed mode (it ran but was real ugly in full screen mode.)

Hope this helps solve your Wine on MacOSX difficulties.
