Freedom issue #366: [winetricks-libre] Patched and Ported from winetricks community

Author: g4jc
Status: open
Priority: feature
Target version: 

I noticed winetricks is not in any of our repositories. This is likely due to it suggesting many non-free additions to wine. It is however quite useful for free alternatives such as mono and for maintaining a clean wine prefix as it does all of this with a nice GUI for the user.
The original package is here: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/any/winetricks/

Attached is my version which contains 90% or more of the non-free compononents removed. 
I am unsure about the fonts, so if someone could look over that section it _should be_ safe to include in [libre].

TODOS: It would be nice to find working GPL substitutions for the benchmark and games category in this script. Although such substitutions can actually be done up-stream rather than just in this package.

Enjoy! :)
