Even for this I think /etc is the wrong place and I'd consider
moving it
elsewhere.  Something in /var on the other hand sounds OK to me.
LSB/FHS seems to suggest /var/lib for this purpose unless there is yet
another more specific requirement I didn't find while browsing it.

In view of,
I'll use
/var/lib/texmf/postinstall for the postinstall markers.  I'm
attaching revised
cygport patches.

I applied and pushed patches 1 and 3; given the texlive/fontconfig
discussion, does 2 still apply?

Not as it stands.  But for users who have chosen to make the TeX Live
fonts available to fontconfig (by creating a symlink as discussed in the
other thread), I think I should keep the font caches up to date.  I'll
send a revised patch tomorrow that does this.

On second thought, that patch is OK as is. I'll just change the texlive perpetual postinstall script so that it only calls fc-cache if the symlink /etc/fonts/conf.d/09-texlive.conf exists.
