Did you compile your own Wine, or get binaries from somewhere?

Wine source code now comes with a set of font description files. If you 
compile your own Wine and you have fontforge, then the fonts will be 
built and installed into "/usr/local/share/wine/fonts/" by default.

I am not sure where Wine actually gets the path from. It is not in the 
registry files, so apparently it is compiled into Wine?
