There might be files there which aren't fonts; hopefully, any "system"
files will begin with a dot, so you could use e.g. "-iname '*'", which
won't match files which start with a dot but will match everything

AFAICT, passing an path to a file which isn't a valid TTF file simply
results in text not being drawn.
