When you do an update, programs installed via ports / packages will be 
removed. If you want to preserve them across major system updates you 
should install into the ports jail.

If you plan to run the app as root, take a look at the "pbi_icon" 
command, and as root run:

# pbi_icon add-pathlnk wine-1.3.21-i386

That should give you the "wine" command in your path as root

Otherwise don't use the /usr/pbi/wine-i386/bin/wine command, instead use

Looking into these here, they look cosmetic, since the app still runs
