Modern fontconfig has /etc/fonts/ dir with config options and where
you can write a local.conf file. Probably it has some defaults and
other things (alternatives, examples) commented out. In some cases,
there are files you can copy (or better symlinks) from the
"conf.avail" subdir to the "conf.d" subdir and that way activate
things. I see a README explaining all this, and "man fonts.conf" also
