I've tried the built-in installer (which hasn't worked for several versions of Wine now), winetricks, total manual install, even wiping Wine entirely and starting fresh, since my first installation of Wine had a perfectly working Gecko engine in it. No such luck.

Getting Gecko to work is, at this point, likely the only way I'll find out if its "absence" is why half of my games crash as soon as I open the patchers and try to get the Gecko installer window out of the way. Currently I'm running Ubuntu Jaunty and Wine 1.1.31, and I'll be honest, I have no clue what version of Gecko it's tried to install on here.

The built-in installer is broken, but winetricks should work. Are you sure you have the latest version of winetricks? If not, download the latest version and try again in a clean wineprefix (no overrides, nothing else installed). If that doesn't work, post console output from trying to install gecko with winetricks.
