How do I make manually installed fonts accessible to all applications without running `fc-cache -f`?

With dpkg new fonts get installed and usable in no time. When I add a font manually I have to use fc-cache -f, which takes a lot of time to complete. How do I install fonts manually the dpkg way? How does dpkg make them accessible to all applications without running fc-cache -f?
