[Wine] Use raw socket on OS X?

I have an application that requires use of SOCK_RAW. On Linux the solution
is okay: sudo setcap cap_net_raw+epi /usr/bin/wineserver. However, such a
thing does not exist on OS X.

I did try chmod o+rw on /dev/bpf* (like Wireshark apparently does) but this
does not work either. The application still crashes upon trying to open a
raw socket.

Has anyone worked around this issue on OS X besides running as root? (For
me running as root fails miserably and of course I would prefer not to).
