Security bugs have been fixed in xfs, which makes it take longer to
load up. Not much can be done about that.
I found that it's ttmkfdir in /usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType etc that takes so
much time. If you are talking about security bugs there, then so be it. Take a
look at bug 58446 though, ttmkfdir is still buggy! I much prefer fast Debian's
version at the moment. It however also has a tiny bug of not counting for
iso10646-1 entry, which they patched in but forgot to increase the counter by
1. Leaving this patch out is perfectly fine.
