I think it already does that, and you just need to
add the "file -ib" piece.  From the man page:

    Both  the user’s files (~/.mailcap;
    ~/.mime.types) and the system files (/etc/mailcap;
    /etc/mime.types) are searched in turn for

So you can make a ~/.mailcap line like this:

    image/*; edit=xtoolwait gimp %s; compose=xtoolwait gimp %s

(I put the xtoolwait in there so that I get my shell
prompt back when the X program starts successfully.)
