It has been requested by some community members that the custom DirectX patches by stefand [1] be integrated into the Wine port.  As this requires a non-trivial amount of work I would like to assess the community's interest in these patches.  

For those who do not know what these patches do: it is reported that they improve the performance of DirectX games and could possibly fix regressions on FreeBSD.  

To try out the packages please either install the packages directly from the mirrors [2] or issue the following commands:
# mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos
# fetch -o /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos http://people.freebsd.org/~dbn/repos/wine-cs.conf
# fetch -o /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos http://people.freebsd.org/~dbn/repos/wine-cs.cert
# pkg update
# pkg install -r wine i386-wine-cs

The packages, although labelled 1.7.15 (for the Wine version they are based on) are based on cs-0.6.  

If you find the packages useful, please report back to me.  If there is sufficient support (i.e. enough people reply in the positive) then I'll publish the packages on a regular basis and maintain the appropriate ports.
