[arch-dev-public] fc-cache in install scriptlets

What is the correct way to us fc-cache in install scriptlets and can we
standardise it?

Currently I see:
fc-cache -s
fc-cache -f
fc-cache -fs

and various pointing to /dev/null (do these even generate output without
using -v?)

It looks like for installing font packages, we should only be using -s.
 It also runs about 1000x times faster than -f on my system.

If that is correct, I will create a rebuild list to get this fixed.

Any comments?
