You might like to check what is _in_ the directories. But it makes no
difference. You can equally well have fonts in /usr/share/fonts or in
your home directory. Personally, I tidy away duplicate directories, and
simlink those that are elsewhere to /usr/share/fonts. Bear in mind that
you may need to re-run update-fonts-dir and update-texmf etc. if you
mess around with font locations.
