Hm. Can't reproduce. With all xorg-fonts packages installed on DragonFly

/usr/bin/time -hl fc-cache -r
        9.27s real              3.86s user              0.62s sys
      3680  maximum resident set size

Which architecture is this? I want to change the font install handling
to run fc-cache $DIR later, so we better fix this :-)
