I'd like a manpage for mailcap. Even though it doesn't exist in
FreeBSD quite a lot of ports use it as you say e.g mutt which comes
with a very short example mailcap.
I think there should be an example mailcap in base too. I can't see
what harm it would do.
You're probably best raising this on docs though.
