Use registerFont and the related methods to explicitly register your
fonts when your application starts up. See sections 3.3 and 3.5 of
the User Guide, in your distro or here:


rl_config is more advanced and can help with auto-discovery of fonts
for people who have zillions of them, but IMHO explicit is much better
than implicit.
