Unfortunately, fontconfig then throws away this information.  I can
create an auxiliary data structure to store pairs of bindings (FcPattern
*, directory) as they come in from disk, but that will require some
hacking.  However, I do agree with you that it's useful to have fc-list
print out the directory name, so I'll try to implement this.
