Wine should search the directory where fontconfig/fontforge is looking for them.  It should be what you stated as the default, Davince, but on my Mac it is a sub-directory of X11.

This is changed or set using an environment variable for FontConfig.  Using the set or env command look for a line like FONTCONFIG to detect if fonts should be in a different directory.  Also, fonts for Wine should be in the drive_c/windows/fonts directory, if I remember the layout of the Wine directory structure correctly.
