Bug Description

I've installed Xubuntu 6.06 Dapper Flight 6 i386, and it took about 20-30 minutes (one third of the whole installation time!!!) to install all font packages, the 4th console showed that the apt system rebuilt the font cache after each package.

Should be:
It should rebuild the font cache only once - after all font packages

or:
shouldn't be obligatory to install all fonts

or:
cache rebuilding should be done faster - in a second, not in a minute.
