Actually, mailwrapper (I don't know about this mailcap thing, I'm only
running STABLE right now for lack of machines) does this job. Have you
looked at /etc/mail/mailer.conf? The sendmail binary in /usr/sbin has no
relation to sendmail - it's the mailwrapper, which is a good concept.

Otherwise, nice to see such a howto.
