Check out the function FcConfigAppFontAddDir().
It lets you add a directory of application-specific fonts to the config.
There is also FcConfigAppFontAdd() to add a single font file.
They are mentioned in fontconfig(3) and also in the fontconfig-devel
I am not familiar with how Qt interacts with fontconfig. There may be
something in the Qt api to call those, or you may have to do so manually.
I'd take a look thru the Qt src for where it calls FcInit(),
FcInitLoadConfig() and/or FcInitLoadConfigAndFonts().
