Though LuaTeX has been able to handle *.dfont font files
since two years ago or so, kpsewhich does not yet support such a file format.

$ kpsewhich --format='truetype fonts' 'Times New Roman'
/Library/Fonts/Times New Roman.ttf
$ kpsewhich --format='truetype fonts' Times
$ kpsewhich --format='truetype fonts' Helvetica
$ kpsewhich --format='truetype fonts' Courier
$ kpsewhich --format='truetype fonts' Courier.dfont

As a Mac user, I wish TL2011 would support this file type as well.
