Yes and no! You have to keep the structure I've described
in the fontinstallation documentation, otherwise the files
will not be found. The subdirectory structure below
fonts/source/, fonts/afm/ and so on doesn't matter. 

The following make rule can be included in the top level
GNUmakefile to add soft links that makes lilypond-X/ look
like a texmf directory. It could be part of the solution:

        ln -s $(depth)/mf/out dvips
        mkdir -p fonts
        ln -s ../$(depth)/mf fonts/source
        ln -s ../$(depth)/mf/out fonts/afm
        ln -s ../$(depth)/mf/out fonts/tfm
        ln -s ../$(depth)/mf/out fonts/type1
