I'm not very exited about hardcoding system font directories into the
code, why OSFONTDIR is there then?, but I've no problem applying your
patch for now. For TTC and LastResort font, I'm still thinking on a more
general font blacklisting way, I'm thinking in a special lua file
containing a simple table with entries that are either font names or
filenames, and it can be exact matches or pattens, something like:

blacklist = {
    {"LastResort", "name"},
    {".ttc$", "file"},

What do you think?

The example file works for me, but I didn't check any further.
