It would be nice if mk/ and mk/install/fonts had support for
things like the following:

   ${X11BASE}/bin/mkfontscale ${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo

   ${X11BASE}/bin/mkfontdir ${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo

(Well it does have that, but fonts.dir is needed before the next step; so
can't rely on because it is too late.)

   ${X11ROOT}/bin/mkfontdir -e ${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/encodings \
                -e ${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/large \

  ${LOCALBASE}/bin/fc-cache ${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF

I think fc-cache should be ran automatically each time a new font package
is added.

The above are examples of what is used for new XFree86-fontsScalable.
