Comment (by ryandesign):

 Looks like the wine dependency has been there since I originally added the
 port in [4de16680a9026d7af52218570b09e44cbbe03bad/macports-ports] /
 r34494. I don't remember a reason for doing this, other than indeed the
 thought that the user is going to need a wine installation in order to
 make use of it. So I agree with your justification for removing the wine

 Note, however, that most of winetricks' dependencies come not from wine
 but from zenity. Winetricks uses zenity to display its dialog boxes.
