Even reading installed fonts list is meaningless, because the package builder has no fonts installed, and such list is meaningless.

The right solution is to either have this as an explicit configuration option: --disable-update-system-fonts,

I understand that you keep in mind people who will just install manually and not update fonts. But it is mostly built by package infrastructure. So maybe --disable-update-system-fonts approach is appropriate.
