 You could create a new directory, say:

 /home/bart/context-os-fonts

 and add (sym)links to /usr/local/share/fonts and /usr/share/fonts in
 that (I myself have added extra symlinks inside /usr/share/fonts).

 Best wishes,
 Taco

Unfortunately,  in a bash shell under Linux, the semi-colon (;) is used to 
separate commands, so this sets the OSFONTDIR to /usr/local/share/fonts and 
then tries to execute the command /usr/share/fonts, which of course it 
cannot do because it's a directory.

I should have escaped it, sorry:
