FontConfig will search directory trees recursively so if you have:
it will find most of them, but if running [as root]:
doesn't list all of your fonts, then add the directories to:
"/etc/fonts/local.conf". Remember, you only need the root of a tree.

It is Qt that uses FontConfig, so it is necessary that you Qt is linked against
FontConfig. Older versions of Qt's 'configure' script had problems finding
FontConfig if it wasn't installed in: /usr/X11R6. That might be your problem if
you built from source.
