Wine needs prelink, so that its dll's are loaded at the proper base address
(some security checks depend on this). However, prelink is not available on
FreeBSD (I gave a quick try at compiling, but it failed).

I filed a ports request ( but it was closed and I was told to file a kern request.
Run `which prelink` :-)
