I don't know that I fully understand you, but winelib is used to port, via source recompilation, Windows apps to Linux. It's not transparent. Wine and its runtime environment is needed to run these applications, winegcc is necessary for compilation. You can't simply link to a library and expect it to work. If you want to include win32 code in a Linux port, you need winelib+winegcc+Wine.

Look at the winelib page and the user's guide that's linked on that page:


If you *aren't* using Win32-specific code, you should be able to port a library to Linux-native without any Wine prereqs. But that's a question for another list/forum since it doesn't have anything to do with Wine.

> Also, I'm want to ask: what is license of wine ? I'm need to make any information about using wine code. I'm from Russia and we are don't use any license like GPL.

Literally one second of Googling (using "wine license") will tell you that Wine uses the LGPL license.
