Here's another big improvement: if it can't find a DLL, it says so,
and says which one(s) it couldn't find.

With wine-1.6.2, running a program that couldn't find a needed DLL
simply returned 53; in that case, it was necessary to rerun it with
  WINEDEBUG=warn+dll wine [failing command]
which would then name the missing DLL(s).
