None. WINE is really a "compatability layer", a library that translates
Windows system calls into Linux ones. Since Linux and BSD are similar
it can (mostly) work under BSD too.

HOWEVER, it does not translate or emulate X86 instructions so that it
can run on a PPC.

There is a DarWINE project to port WINE to the X86 version of MacOS, it
existed long before there were Intel Macintosh computers, but when they
were announced, it became much more relevant.

The only things you can run a SoftPC and VirtualPC and under them run a
full copy of Windows. There are X86 emulators that are freeware, but
AFIK they won't run Windows.
