Sorry, I don't know details of how to do this on Linux, I'd have to do  
some research. (I normally do profiling on OS X, where I'm familiar  
with the tools, but in this particular case that wouldn't be much help  
as the font-finding routines are different.) On Linux, I expect tools  
like valgrind or gprof could be used to study the behavior but I can't  
give you an exact "recipe" offhand.
