Try this:

mount -t binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc

In the recent -ac versions, binfmt_misc must be mounted separately. I have the
following in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local so that it will work with both Linus' and
Alan's kernels (the third variation was for an older -ac kernel that didn't
create the binfmt_misc directory either; it's really not needed anymore but I
left it in just in case):

#
# Register entries in binfmt_misc
#
if [ -f /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register ] ; then
        echo ':DOSWin:M::MZ::/usr/local/bin/wine:' >
/proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
elif [ -d /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc ] ; then
        mount -t binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc
        echo ':DOSWin:M::MZ::/usr/local/bin/wine:' >
/proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
else
        mount -t binfmt_misc none /etc/binfmt_misc
        echo ':DOSWin:M::MZ::/usr/local/bin/wine:' > /etc/binfmt_misc/register
fi
