If you look at the Indy xinitrc RPM you will notice that when X is
started it scans
/etc/X11/fonts (from memory) and excutes the files there.  That is if
you place
a shell script there containing the two xset commands you get automatic
font path
updating when the user adds or remove the fonts package (provided X is
restarted of course)
