Fonts are usually under /user/share/fonts/, some distros (like debian)
has a separate subdir truetype for TrueType fonts. Users may added
fonts under ~/.fonts as well.

so: ~/.fonts;/usr/share/fonts/;/usr/share/fonts/truetype ?

 I don't think this will work, since /usr/share/fonts and
 /usr/share/fonts/truetype have multiple subdirs (per package) that has
 the actuall fonts, does context look into subdirs as well or the top
 dir only.
 
 What about querying fontconfig about installed fonts (which I guess what
 XeTeX does under linux) this allows calling the font by the actual font
 name not filename.

When you has run

   mtxrun --script font --reload

that file will be consulted too. After than you can access fonts by name 
  by using a name: prefix, so

   name:mynamedfont

With

   mtxrun --script font --list

you can see what fontnames are accepted.
