Followup-For: Bug #742561
Package: wine-development
Version: 1.7.27-1


attached is a new patch to fix the wine64 support. I changed my approach
to only use wine64 if WINEARCH is set.

- Wine script:
  - Use wine64 if WINEARCH is win64, show help message and exit if
    wine64 is not installed.
  - Show help message and exit, if called without WINEARCH, but only
    wine64 is installed.
  - If WINEARCH is set, add it to the call of the wine executable.
- Add wine64 wrapper script to call wine script with WINEARCH set to
- Patch winemenubuilder to set WINEARCH.

My patch for winemenubuilder only works if WINEARCH was set. Otherwise
it results in WINEARCH="(null)". Possible solutions might be:
- Change the patch to only add a WINEARCH entry if WINEARCH was set.
- Only apply the patch on amd64. With my proposed solution WINEARCH is
  always set when using wine64 (except if you call the executable
  directly) - so this would work.
NOTE: Just passing an empty WINEARCH to the wine executable (if WINEARCH
was not set) does not work,
