I don't particulary like to clutter the configuration with paths and
variables which *might* ease user's configuration. We could as well put
a setup.bat (and a setup.sh and setup.csh with burne shell and c-shell
syntax) with a template somewhere which has:
  set fontdir=c:/windows/fonts
  set T1FONTS=;%fontdir%//
  set OPENTYPEFONTS=;%fontdir%//
  set TTFONTS=;%fontdir%//
for people who might need it.
