Let's defer this point to a much later discussion. We want to move most
of the install scripts into pkg_install or similiar low-level package,
instead of duplicating them all the time. With this it is also much
simpler to replace them on a different platform to exploit native
mechanisms (e.g. font registration with YaST on SuSE).
