I don't exactly understand the full story, but what is exactly a core
font? It seems to me that mkfondir and xfs are not really needed
anymore. I have a package (libdockapp) that ships some bitmap fonts. Is
it the same? In this package I have a link in 
linking to the font directory. Is there an issue with this type of
fonts (called along luxel-ascii-06x09.pcf.gz seg7-ascii-05x07.pcf.gz)?

I run fc-cache in this package scriptlets, although I am not sure that
it is useful.
