One thing, when etc/mailcap entry reads:

   application/msexcel; oocalc '%s'; edit=oocalc '%s

What happens then 'oocalc' is not available? How is
the error handling done, so that e.g. 'xmessage' is
displayed under Window mamager to notify the user?

Well, an error status is returned. The calling program can handle this
any way it likes. Only the calling program knows the appropriate way
to pass this information onto the user.
