Have you tried building Wine from ports to see if that one works?
If it doesn't we'll need your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and
/var/log/Xorg.0.log and the output of "pkg_info -rx wine". I've
included my output of that, so you can check if perhaps you miss any
dependencies. My packages are somewhat outdated though.
