Upstream (1.9.6) now honors fontdir (see below). Cherry-picking this
commit to 1.8.1 works.

However I noted that you always need some of the .ttf fonts next to the
.fon fonts. Otherwise the line height is much too big. So I think we
should install some of Wine's .ttf fonts. Vanilla wine installs the
following fonts:
I asked upstream if not even all .ttf fonts should be installed

Optimally we'd use the upstream logic to install the fonts (fon+ttf) in
arch-indep. I don't know though if this possible.

Otherwise I'd suggest (and commit that to "stretch") to package those 5
fonts and the upstream fix.
