This is my fault; I added desktop-file-utils to a lot of things based
on bogus guidance from pkglint. We need to instead have a build check
that checks the actual installed desktop files for mime types; this
AFAIK hasn't been done (I haven't had time) and I have been waiting to
go and clean up the mess I made until this check was in place.
