This file seems to come from mime-support, which is a Debian package.
Do other Posix systems, whether other GNU/Linux or Unix, also have
this file?

OTOH, if we want to rely on this file, then why do we have a non-empty
mailcap-mime-extensions at all?  And why adding a few more entries to
that list should be rejected?

In any case, one can download (what seems to be) the latest version of
the mime-support package from here:


Then set the MIMETYPES environment variable to point to its absolute
file names, and then it can be used by mailcap-parse-mimetypes on any
system.  Perhaps we should recommend users to do that if their systems
don't have the file already.
