I've just set up an amd64 partition to test on, and it also works fine 
there, apparently. My LANG is normally set to nb_NO.UTF-8. If I do:
$ LC_MESSAGES=sv_SE.UTF-8 winecfg
it talks Swedish, as expected. Also works with fr_FR.UTF-8, en_US.UTF-8, 

Well, I just noticed that it seems it doesn't work with en_GB.UTF-8. 
Looks like winecfg's localized resources are inadvertently only defined 
for en_US, not for en_*, causing a fallback. I guess that's a bug, but 
it's not that LC_MESSAGES isn't respected. Just that en_US is the only 
English language winecfg knows...
