I'd assume that a font delivery service would give you a font from a  
pool. And there the path is not necessary – as is the knowledge of  
where a pizza's ingredients come from. As long as it's healthy.

Ulrike, you seem to use libfontconfig. This service stores the path  
name of a font, which can also be listed on the command line. In Mac  
OS X Apple provides its Font Tools suite. Among these  
ftxinstalledfonts exists, which also is able to report the path name  
of a font on the command line (and Font Book/Schriftsammlung knows  
it). Maybe just a changed argument to a system call is necessary to  
receive the font's path name ...

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
