This is my configuration too. Where did you put your "locally installed 
fonts" before?

Basically, with a portable installation, you put all your local things 
into $HOME/texmf, from there they should be picked up automatically (at 
least for pdflatex and company). Lualatex and xelatex should see all the 
font your system see, so basically it depends on how you add a font to 
your system.
