Hi,

Concerning unix: Norbert Preining (tex live maintainer) found out that 
when font directories are symlinks, file access is much slower due to 
more lookups (esp with long names as then the lookup is indirect which 
means more disk access). Of course on a modern machine with ssd this is 
neglectable.
