As it is now possible to list unwanted files in /etc/pkgmk.conf (see
pkgadd(8)) installing mime stuff or info pages by default is not that
bad idea. I am not sure if this was discussed before and I'd like to
know if we _should_ install them? Any comments from the system team?
IMHO, checking if something is installed inside Pkgfile does not
look like a 'best practice' we should provide.
