I believe that there are standard ways of adding entries to these files - 
see the Guidelines.

Hmm. Maybe I should extend the mechanism for installing font packages to 
allow extra packages to register fonts and make sure that they get 
included in the appropriate configuration files. (They have to be 
included in the font server configuration file too.)

For now, add this line to /etc/X11/XF86Config with a postinst script 
(asking the user first). I'll think about how to do this properly, and 
get back to you.
