It wasn't me who first suggested modifying fonts.conf. Indeed, I am 
probably against this approach. 

I suggest it may be easier, (and as you know you can create 
collections, which is what I think you wished GIMP could do) to use 
OSX's Font to browse for a font, and then to use GIMP's text 
tool options to select it by entering its name (or part thereof) using 
the font selector's text-field selection tool.
