Run 'wine' once from the shell for it to generate the .wine directory
under $HOME. Then, try using 'winecfg' for configuration

However, so far I have not been able to get anything more complex than
notepad running under wine on freebsd-6.1-release

There's a nice technical discussion of WINE vs FreeBSD over on hackers@ (http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-hackers/2006-July/017323.html) that talks about why wine doesn't work. Supposedly if you set up wine to emulate Win2K it'll work better, but not perfectly (like WINE ever worked perfectly :) and there are patches in the pipeline that'll help with some other problems.
