as an alternative "solution" I can only recommend making (as an option or a slave package) i386-wine-devel coinstallable with wine-devel by stripping all conflicting files from i386-wine-devel. That should enable wow64 functionality while preserving every single annoyance about the current system.

I think if we have lib32 things is should be a new kind of feature quite close to the debug packages I am working on.

Well, assuming Phabricator notifications are not broken and this is indeed intentional silence, as an alternative "solution" I can only recommend making (as an option or a slave package) i386-wine-devel coinstallable with wine-devel by stripping all conflicting files from i386-wine-devel.

@mat Ok, pretty please with a direct mention on top. Specifically, since dbn@ has essentially abandoned this patch, what should we do with it? Does it make sense for me to resubmit an updated patch? (It's quite a bit larger, though.) Who is actually supposed to review, commit or decline this?

As a reminder to new subscribers, just to make sure we are on the same page: this review is dead. Period.

Regarding the recent bug tracker comment, I would actually appreciate this and https://reviews.freebsd.org/D14721 being closed. Right now for people glancing through this thread it's not clear that nothing here is being actively worked on. @dbn?

I noticed that I was (still) listed as reviewer and want to clarify that this is way outside my comfort zone, both technically, in terms of what I can verify/test, and on top of those time plus what I could approve.

I've yet to do some sanity checks to verify that Wine is actually buildable

Should be in reasonable shape now.

Ok, this looks as good as dead. Was this proposal discussed elsewhere and put on hold? Anything else?

Any plans on doing something with this in 2019?

Oh, nice. I immediately got flamed for mentioning that version discrepancy on the FreeBSD forums (with https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189180 closed as a consequence), so this patch is extremely welcome.

chroot call can be allowed to non root user, I can write simple MAC module that do this.
Or just use mac_biba / mac_lomac.

@rozhuk.im-gmail.com You know the chroot approach is basically unmergable, right? Unless D16830: USES=lib32: add support for lib32- companion ports also fails review for some reason, it will not be used.

I've also made an attempt to modify some ports according to the initial variant of this patch (i.e., flavors). I will update my diff in a few days, but where exactly should I put proposed additions and/or changes? Not clear on the workflow.

I am realizing that to resolve the need for i386-on-amd64 packages properly would require much cooperation, making this a large undertaking, as it was for the adoption of FLAVORS.
In the interest of improving Wine experience on FreeBSD for all, it is probably better to avoid such potentially controversial changes and to keep to the model of distributing all i386 Wine libs as a single package, despite the many drawbacks.

I feel a bit rude registering just to make a drive-by comment… Anyway, here are 3 semi-related points:
