The solution I've been using on Solaris for this is to deliver both
32-bit & 64-bit copies of fc-cache and having them both run by our
service management framework on both every reboot and any time a
package delivering fonts is installed (our package manager has specific
support for activating services when package operations have finished for
post-install or post-remove type actions).
