just fooled by the old postinstall files (.done)

I rebuilt plotutils, and now there is no postinstall script,
however it seems the tekfont*.pcf fonts are not recognized
by fontconfig.

I also tried to uncompress them but it makes no difference

$ cd /usr/share/fonts/misc

$ file *
fonts.dir:       ASCII text
fonts.scale:     ASCII text
tekfont0.pcf:    X11 Portable Compiled Font data, LSB first
tekfont0.pcf.gz: gzip compressed data, was "tekfont0.pcf", last

tekfont1.pcf:    cd , LSB first
tekfont1.pcf.gz: gzip compressed data, was "tekfont1.pcf", last

$ /usr/libexec/fc-cache-1 -r -s -v
/usr/share/fonts: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 9 dirs
[cut]
/usr/share/fonts/misc: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 0 dirs
[cut]
/var/cache/fontconfig: cleaning cache directory
/usr/libexec/fc-cache-1: succeeded

Instead
$ /usr/bin/mkfontdir  /usr/share/fonts/misc
creates the expected old font info:

$ cat fonts.dir
4
tekfont0.pcf.gz tekfont0
tekfont1.pcf.gz tekfont1
tekfont2.pcf.gz tekfont2
tekfont3.pcf.gz tekfont3

How should I manage the postintall for this font ?
