just edit /etc/fonts/local.conf and add more directories. If you
do not already have a local.conf file, the new file should look
like this:

	<?xml version="1.0"?>
	<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
	<!-- ~/.fonts.conf for per-user font configuration -->
		<dir>more directories</dir>

When I first did this, you need to also copy the directories
that are in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf (or else those directories
won't be considered). I don't know if this is still the case.
