Wine isn't 32-bit only; it's universal. And with a few changes to the Portfile it can build 64-bit only. But then it can't run any 32-bit Windows software, which is probably rather limiting. As I mentioned in other threads, I'm working on a solution involving the use of the 10.13 SDK on 10.14 so that we can continue to build universal, and Codeweavers is working on a solution that will work even after macOS drops 32-bit support entirely, probably through the use of an emulator like qemu.
