Ports request

I have had a really difficult time getting wine to run on PC-BSD and FreeBSD.  Nothing seems to work correctly.  Is there a simple document to get this to work?

If I can get it to work, there's probably a good chance I can move the boy (and others) over to PC-BSD.

Don't be fooled-- the people responsible for bringing Steam to Linux
are the guys at Valve, not the "Linux people", whoever they are.

Being non-free software, we are almost powerless in porting it.  It
does run great under Wine however.
