My thanks to all of you for your help with this issue, especially the mac
information since it is the one OS I am TOTALLY unfamiliar with.

Solution I came up with from this information and my own research shows that
on windows the fonts have to be installed at the OS level (as reported here
by Heikki and Miroslaw), and Linux (most of them anyway) can handle the
~/.fonts method.

Mac is similar with  ~/Library/Fonts/ as a user level font location.

Best solution for windows is in the share folder of the installation I
guess, that way just Libre gets them and the kids doing their homework on
Brand X's product don't get confused by a system wide install  (would be bad
if their teacher couldn't read the homework due to unavailability of

The gallery issue is just going to be a pain.  So I am writting an
instructional paper right now to 'teach' all of our users to handle their
images like this:
1.) Before putting it in the document put it in 
      - Windows: %APPDATA%\LibreOffice\3\user\gallery\projectIDCode\
      - Linux: ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/ gallery/projectIDCode/
      - Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/libreoffice/3/user/
2.)  Create the gallery if its new.
3.)  Import the gallery folder.
4.)  Add the image to the file.

This way when galleries need to be updated all we need is the folder of
images and instructions on what folder to unpack them into, and simply
create the gallery new with the correct name, or reimport that directory.

So I guess my questions are all answered but one...who do I poke at to get
user level font control installed in the next major release?

Thank you again every one
