New issue 812 by v.villenave: ./configure detects incorrect set of Century Schoolbook fonts

Reported by Patrick McCarty and John Mandereau:

If the ~/.fonts directory contains the FontForge-generated Century
Schoolbook OTF fonts from a previous LilyPond compile, ./configure
detects *two* of these OTF fonts and *two* of the system PFB fonts.

Century Schoolbook font lookup is first attempted by FontConfig, and if
it's successful, the lookup stops. We should refine fc-match lookup by
excluding paths that contain $HOME.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

1) Extract the following fonts from your LilyPond installation, and
move them to ~/.fonts


2) Start a fresh git build with ./autogen.sh (in my case, I do
./autogen.sh --prefix=$HOME/usr, but this shouldn't matter)

3) Configure will detect two of these OTF fonts and two of the system PFB

 checking New Century Schoolbook PFB files...

Configure *should* detect these fonts:
