One problem of this solution is that some font packages (for example,
fonts-misc-misc) already have fonts.dir, to avoid conflict, it is better
to remove fonts.dir in all font packages and generate fonts.dir in
fonts-dir-file,  I think that is good.  But I don't know whether others
think that is a good idea.
