Installation of Type1 fonts

Dear developers (already DD or not)!

I am looking for a list/howto/explanation on what is useful when
installing type1 fonts for X11.

There is
. dh_installxfonts and /etc/X11/fonts/Type1/$(package).scale
  Ok, this is absolutely necessary I would say.

. dh_installdefoma and $(package).defoma-hints
  Hmm, defoma seems to me really a bit out-of-date in the sense that
  I don't see any use for it. Activating a font for fontconfig should
  be enough to get it working with most applications in Debian, sin't

. fontconfig: should I call fc-cache -s after installation of fonts?

What else could be useful.

Thanks a lot and all the best
