[pkg-wine-party] Bug#709368: wine-bin-unstable, libwine-unstable: wine expects some files to be located in /usr/share/wine/ instead of /usr/share/wine-untable/.

Package: libwine-unstable wine-bin-unstable
Version: 1.5.7-6
Severity: grave
Justification : renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

wine expects various files to be in the /usr/share/wine/ directory, but
these files are actually installed in the /usr/share/wine-unstable/

While this doesn’t render the package unusable for an existing wine
installation, this does cause wine to not be able to create a new wine
prefix for a user, because it can’t locate the wine.inf file.

It also won’t be able to update an existing outdated wine prefix or
display certain fonts. While I didn’t test it, there is a PPD file in
/usr/share/wine-unstable/, so wine might not be able to print
anything at the moment.

Linking to every entry of /usr/share/wine-unstable/ from
/usr/share/wine/ solved the issue.
