When running Windows applications in top of wine (under Linux), which make use of MDAC library, then it’s possible to get an error message like the one below:

err:secur32:SECUR32_initSchannelSP TLS library not found, SSL connections will fail

Like the message says you don’t have the TLS library installed. Actually it means that your wine is not compiled with “gnutls” networking flag.

In Gentoo, edit your /etc/portage/package.use file and add/update the entry for app-emulation/wine to use also the “gnutls” flag:

app-emulation/wine gnutls

After that you have to re-emerge the app-emulation/wine atom into portage, which means that your wine will be recompiled (with the dev-perl/Authen-SASL library) and reinstalled, so that this error should just disappear.
