Lynx can't directly do this from a .mailcap entry.  You can try
from the command line:

    lynx -source ftp://site/path | na_play

I believe that with any metamail-compatible system, if you include
the "%s", the user agent creates a file and passes its name to the
helper-app.  You must omit the "%s" to get real-time streaming.
But while lynx lately supports the syntax, it still creates a file
then pipes that with "cat" into the helper-app.
