Yes, over in the other camp, update-mime-database is called at install


(and the etoys package for Sugar is built by the etoys source package;
mentioned for understanding the reference only).

But any accidental run of update-mime-database at package build time
is ignored by the RPM process, because it explicitly identifies what
is to be included.

I guess this has hidden a fault in the upstream source, so we should
get it fixed in the upstream source.
