It uses the system, i.e., fontconfig (fc-list, fc-match, fc-cache).
There are system-wide settings in an XML file /etc/fonts/fonts.conf
or such, and there are user-narrow settings in ~/.fonts.conf. So
you're free to install extra fonts "somewhere" – as long as it's
documented. After installation you should run fc-cache, or some
programme will do it for you when you need it right now!
