Hmm... I don't have that conf.d directory. Is there anything in it? I don't know enough about GIMP to explain that, someone else here might.
You could edit the etc\fonts\fonts.conf to add the <cachedir> line above or instead of the existing <cachedir>WINDOWSTEMPDIR_FONTCONFIG_CACHE</cachedir> line - although the documentation warns against modifying that file directly as it will be replaced when fontconfig is updated.
