That's not a Wine question. Ask the BackTrack guys.

But before you do, why are you running Wine in a Linux VM, when you can just run Wine directly on Mac OS X? Yes, it does work. I use it myself. (See http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX .)

In fact, why are you even bothering with Wine at all? Nine times out of 10, the right solution (as I've said in elsewhere) is to find a native program that does what you want on whatever OS you're running, rather than messing with Wine--especially on Mac.
