The standard way is to do the following:

Edit -> Preferences

In preferences click on the arrow next to Folders, scroll down. Here is
where things get hairy. On *Nix you should by default have two entries:

/home/user/.gimp-2.x/fonts (replace x with your point version)

On Windows, I don't know off the top of my head, if you are running
Windows, perhaps someone else with access to a Windows box will be able
to tell you what you should find there.

Now you can either add fonts to those directories OR, at least on my
FreeBSD-8.0-RELEASE-p2 machine, you can create a dot directory (like
.gimp-2.x in the above example) called .fonts and drop all your fonts in
there. If you do that, you won't have any extra steps. If, however, you
want to put your fonts elsewhere, these are the steps to add a folder to
that list for GIMP to look in for fonts.

Hit the folder button to the extreme right to start browsing for the
directory that you want to add. During this process you can create a
folder while browsing for one by selecting "create folder" option in the
window that you use to browse the directory.

When done select ok, hit the white paper to add the directory to the
list, click ok and restart The GIMP. From then on it will look in those
folders to see those fonts.

If I'm missing a step (perhaps for Windows), I hope someone will add to
this reply (also correcting me if I've missed a step).
