Try this on 64bit PC-BSD, download and install 8.0 32bit version of wine:


It should install and run on your 64bit system just fine :)

I don't like adding these types of files manually. Wine already 
downloads it properly, and if they update the .cab file, or change 
something, I don't want to have to keep updating our module after the fact.

I'll keep that in mind for the next updates to the PBI system. After the 
release of 8.0, I have some re-writes to do of some of the PBI stuff, 
and thats a feature that would be a must-have.

The new Pootle should be working fine now. I haven't had a chance to 
setup the SVN integration, but the interface seems fine. If you are 
seeing errors, go ahead and send them to Josh and I so we can 
investigate. If I can get the SVN stuff added in the next few days, 
we'll get it cut over to the new Pootle site.
