MIME encoding, Evolution, and mutt

Well, I thought I'd share my results to date.

Evolution is ~17MB of source and needs a dozen other packages. I believe
it is/was possible to have evolution without gnome, although this is the
preferred method. If anyone can point me at a way to build evolution
without gnome libs, then I'd love to see it written.

Alternatively, If gnome is only needed to compile, I have gnome libs on
another partition, and mebbe I can point at them.

Mutt seems to have a file mime.types which I found well hidden in
/usr/local/etc. It looks like this. I'll get it into user's subdirs as
~/.mime.types and mebbe things will improve.
