It is possible what is in /usr/local/bin is only a symlink to /opt/local/bin

Also, if /opt/local/bin is not in the PATH and before /usr/local/inb
then which wine will not find wine installed there.

You do have a valid point though, how did Wine get in /usr/local/bin
and is there?  Is it a symbolic-link to wine somewhere else or is this
an actual executible program.

Questions that need to answered have been asked:

What is at /usr/local/bin/wine (ls -l wine and file wine are two
commands that you can use)?
What is at /opt/local ?

We can provide help if needed, but if your MacPorts installation is
broken you may have to go to them for help.

Thank you.
