Well, I can only speak to the needs of the pine package. /etc/mailcap is
provided by mime-support and needed by pine. This is the reason for it's
dependence on mime-support. Install-mime is not needed or used by the pine
installation scripts, so is not the issue here. I can only assume that the
other packages mentioned have similar needs and therefore, rightly, depend
on mime-support.
