When creating a new prefix, wine complains that it cannot find the wine-mono package and offer to download it, even though it is already installed.

Cause: shows that the msi in /usr/share/wine/mono/ was renamed upstream from wine-mono-pkgver.msi to wine-mono-pkgver-x86.msi, but the PKGBUILD still installs it to the old location.

Creating symlink wine-mono-5.0.0-x86.msi is sufficient to fix the issue.

Any workaround for this, other than letting wine install mono on its own? I see the prompt to install mono every time I start wine now :(

# ln -s /usr/share/wine/mono/wine-mono-5.0.0.msi /usr/share/wine/mono/wine-mono-5.0.0-x86.msi
Still needed for wine-5.8-1
