Well, as it stands right now it still doesn't work even if you move it
into place by hand because the lack of fop-ttfreader still prevents the
PDF from being created.

So perhaps:

1) If we don't find fop-ttfreader then always use the built-in fonts and
2) If we DO find fop-ttfreader, then do the search (not using the
built-in font dir).

Or just simplify it to always use the built-in font.  If someone wants
to change fonts down the road then they can just swap them out and
supply the new font files.  Or is that too much overhead?  Do we think
people will actually want to use different fonts?
