That way all the needed libraries (open source) will be installed on your friend's computer, and the WINE executable on your thumb drive will work. Just have some prefixes on your thumb drive, and voila! Maybe some bash scripts to run programs off your thumb drive instead of having to type out the path to your wine executable, the Windows exectuable, _and_ the wineprefix _every_single_time. Oh boy. Those bash scripts again. You don't intend on running a debugger, do you?
Portable Applications come as a 'bundle' and do not need external 
libraries.  This would make Wine HUGE.  The WineBottler and Wine 
applications built by Mike Kronenberg are such but for MacIntosh systems.
