I planned place _default_ path to configure. With --with-fontdir 
option we can set it to any other place.
If we have this path hardcoded in fonts/ we can't use 
it from other places of WINE tree.

I don't like WINE fonts in %_datadir/fonts/wine, I it crossed 
with ALT Linux font policy and so on.
I have a small patch to check the font dir after C:
\\WINDOWS\\FONTS for bitmap/ttf fonts. It patch needs in 
@FONTDIR@ substitution in Makefile.
Sorry if I can't express my thoughts in English clearly.
