Is there a simpler way to purge the cached font metrics in /var/cache/fonts
than something like

find /var/cache/fonts -type f -name "*.pk" -o -name "*.tfm" | xargs rm


In particular, I find that upgrading tetex packages doesn't do this
automatically.  Should it?  Is this a bug? 

Nothing can be explained to a stone.
Or to a stoned person, either.
