I know nothing about pica, but most other programs have configuration
files documented in section 5 of the manual.

For example procmailrc printcap pop3lite.conf pfilter.conf etc.. all
lives in man 5

Apparently the 7-th section of the manual is for non-file information
(e.g. character sets, network protocols, SQL commands...)
