[Fontconfig] Finding font filename

Given a name, like "Bitstream Charter 16", is there any way to get the 
path to the actual font file out of that?

I've got an editor with a font selection dialog in Gtk, and when 
printing text to pdf, it uses fop (http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/), 
and fop again needs the path to the actual font, e.g. 
/usr/X11R6/lib/x11/fonts/CharisSILR.ttf, to properly display Unicode text.

I've been trying to find out how to get that path, and looked through 
the fontconfig documentation, and get the impression that fontconfig, 
should be able to provide it, but the big question is: How???

Thanks a lot,

Teus Benschop.
