Sorry, I don't know.  Please ask the Wine mailing lists or the mailing list.

(This may well be an issue where you are hit by the fact the FreeBSD 
support for Wine lags behind GNU/Linux support; also note that due to
changes in recent versions of Wine which conflict with FreeBSD, the
emulators/wine port is not the most up-to-date version of Wine.)
