Thank you for that information. Every normal desktop installation
features a lot of the needed libraries like cups or sane wich will satisfy
the wine dependancies. But 64 bit users, were wine often is the only
32 bit application, need these dependancies. I strongly suggest that there
should be a way to provide these dependancies to get a fully functioning 
wine installation.

I would suggest to create one meta package like wine-all-dependancies
to satisfy all dependancies or single packages just like the old ones for
example libwine-print, etc., wich at least can install the dependancies
for libraries like cups etc.
Kind regards,
