getnonfreefonts --help states

getnonfreefonts installs fonts in $TEXMFHOME.
getnonfreefonts-sys installs fonts in $TEXMFLOCAL.

for a non technical user who does not know anything about the difference 
between $TEXMFHOME and $TEXMFLOCAL, I would suggest changing this.

At least make sure that the user knows that getnonfreefonts will install 
locally for this user only, whereas getnonfreefonts-sys installs for all 

$TEXMFLOCAL does not really sound global...
