Bear in mind that that will only work if you also set

"ShowDirSymlinks=1" in either your config file, or in winecfg-- by 
default Wine doesn't follow symlinks, or recognize them (except in 
dosdevices), because Windows doesn't.

That said, though, I always set that first thing, and it works fine 
(though I've never used it for fonts, but I don't see why it would be 
any different for fonts than anything else).
