Nope. As far as I can tell, you don't need to re-run it on fontconfig
upgrades (perhaps on some major update, I suppose), only if you change
your configuration or fonts or something. And we've got:

bob:/usr/pkgsrc/fonts/fontconfig$ cat MESSAGE
$NetBSD: MESSAGE,v 1.1 2002/12/25 03:06:02 grant Exp $

You will need to run 'fc-cache' as root to build the X11
font cache before attempting to use applications which
use ${PKGNAME}.
