Specific for distribution may be a way of composing /etc/mailcap. But its 
meaning is common to all. It affects generally all programs that 
uses /etc/mailcap. For testing can be used (ie Debian) commands such as 
run-mailcap, see, print, compose,...

The truth is that the file location is apparently a matter of packaging == 
distribution specific. I just now looking into the packages and kpdf-trinity 
and kedit-trinity. That differ not only in the location:
 /usr/lib/mime × /opt/trinity/lib/mime, but also
 /usr/share/menu × /opt/trinity/share/menu,
 /usr/share/doc/kedit-trinity × /opt/trinity/share/doc/kpdf-trinity.

Obviously it is a mess. :)
