> But I am still puzzled as to know how how Knuth's "B L User" is intended to (a) learn of the existence of fc-cache (and presumably, some of the other fc-tools), (b) understand their potential importance in terms of the run-time for XeTeX and friends, and (c) learn how/when to invoke fc-cache.
By reading the documentation? Try “texdoc xetex-reference”.
Fontconfig is mentioned in the second paragraph of the part about fonts.

Yes, it is. Had you really not heard of it before?
