The associated port is still on version 1.3.7:
Once that gets updated, a new PBI should be available shortly afterwards.

Wine version 1.3.11 was just released for 8.x
Have fun with it!

The pbiDIR (http://www.pbidir.com/bt/pbi/11/wine) site says:
As is normal with Wine apps, you will need to be on 1.4 or higher for it to perform properly!
Then it goes on to offer:
PC-BSD 32bit v.8.x
That is not 1.4, and 32 bit machines haven't been on the market for some years now. I'm not suggesting that everything should be the latest, I like vintage computers myself, but this is all very confusing for me.
I know there is a problem with 64 bit wine, but what I want to know is if it is possible to install, and use, wine on contemporary hardware. If so, how would I do it?

I have found that line (about 1.4 or higher) to be confusing as well, considering that PBIDIR has the latest version available (development version, stable version is much older).
The only reason I can think of for that comment is that it is referring to PCBSD-1.4 or higher, not the wine version. As such, I have just changed the description of the wine pbi to match what is on freshports.
As to installing x32 PBI's on an x64 system:
You just need to download the PBI from pbidir (the software manager will not work here) and install it manually. It will warn you that you are installing a 32-bit PBI on a 64-bit system, but it should have no problems after that.

Sorry to bump this old thread, however I'm having trouble getting wine installed on my amd64 system.
I've downloaded the .pbi file manually from http://www.pbidir.com/bt/pbi/11/wine, however when I try to install it, I get:
[root@desktop Downloads]# pbi_add wine-1.3.26-i386.pbi
pbi_add: Failed to read PBI header!
I've searched google for this error but not coming up with many results. Any ideas?

Since you are using pbi_add to install, I assume that you are using PCBSD 9.0-BETA1 (64-bit). However, the PBI's on PBIDIR.com specifically say that they are for the PCBSD 8 series, not the new 9 series. They PBI architecture between the 8.x and 9.x PBI's is very different, so I am not surprised that you are getting this error since pbi_add is not designed to work with the old architecture.
As a solution, you can open up the AppCafe in PCBSD 9.0 and download/install the wine PBI from there. It is not the latest version yet, since we are still in the middle of rebuilding all the 9.x PBI's in preparation for final release of 9.0, but it should work for now until it gets updated within the next week or two.
