fontpath setting required

Some linux distros have font packages that include many of the free fonts that some clients use. This task is to add a "fontpath" engine setting that will allow the users to specify the font path. This will prevent clients from having to distribute the font in their packages. Multiple font paths should be allowed in this setting.

I'm currently maintaining FIFE in openSUSE and I'm trying to get ownership of FIFE in Fedora to maintain it. The main reason I'm placing some efforts in making available binary packages of FIFE for openSUSE and Fedora is related to Unknown Horizons which I've been packaging before for both distributions.

This feature is currently most welcome, as one of the requirements for Fedora is that system wide installed fonts can be used. Until this feature has been implemented there's not much chances that UH can live inside of the Fedora distribution which is bad as it was requested by some of the Unknown Horizons users.

Furthermore, FIFE being properly maintained on Fedora will most like engage and bring new positive synergies around FIFE as it will be more exposed to the wider community. Currently the fife package on Fedora has not seen much love, something I would like to change.

Please implement this feature.
