Version 5, 32-bit
Works with Windows 98 and NT 4.0. The BOINC website claims it should work with Windows 95 but the installer refuses to continue.
What does not
could not contribute to project everything seemed to work otherwise. I just looked like I had no computer time dedicated to the project I chose. I kept getting the following message on the console wher I started the client.
fixme:thread:NtQueryInformationThread Cannot get kerneltime or usertime of other threads

BOINC is available for a wide array of platforms, and a lot of platforms are supported by the projects. You are probably better off asking a project to support your platform than using Wine to translate Windows calls.
It should be possible to use a native BOINC and run a Windows executable with Wine if absolutely necessary.
Test results for BOINC are still welcome as they help developers with Wine.
