MC supports system-wide file bindings using xdg-open.

Just upgraded to Slackware Current on my old eeepc netbook, decided to 
play a piece of music afterward to relax, and I confronted this.

I looked into the extension editor, and it says about wav files and other 
sound files that it follows what is in /usr/libexec/mc/ext.d/

That file does not seem to contain anything of the kind. It says it is 
going to use "play" in the terminal (which is what I expected) and it says 
it wants to use "xmms" in X.

Look at the end of

87     "${MC_XDG_OPEN}" "${MC_EXT_FILENAME}" 2>/dev/null || \
88         do_open_action "${filetype}"

To disable xdg-open in mc, you can define MC_XDG_OPEN=/bin/false.
