As an example, in Fontmatrix we ask for all directories registered in the 
Fontconfig configuration and then we build our own list of font files by 
running recursively through these directories. We do so rather than FcList 
because we want to avoid our own registered directory. Once you get this 
list, you’ll be able to do watever you want with these files.
