Just putting "Times" does not work.  lilypond/guile seem to recognize
Times Roman at some level, since if I put anything else, including just
Times, I don't get warnings, but I do get a default sans serif font stuck
in by lilypond.

Here's the fc-query information for the font:

fc-query /usr/share/fonts/100dpi/timR24-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz
Pattern has 19 elts (size 32)
         family: "Times"(s)
         style: "Regular"(s)
         slant: 0(i)(s)
         weight: 80(i)(s)
         width: 100(i)(s)
         pixelsize: 34(f)(s)
         foundry: "Adobe"(s)
         antialias: False(s)
         file: "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi/timR24-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz"(s)
         index: 0(i)(s)
         outline: False(s)
         scalable: False(s)

         fontversion: 0(i)(s)
         fontformat: "PCF"(s)
         decorative: False(s)
         hash: "sha256:5df8425881526fb177ab9b8e9fcd8a9243b63e220b46b25f69f195f82319c2ff"(s)
         postscriptname: "Times"(s)

Here's my suspicion: One part of the software is matching on Times Roman, another on Times, and
as a result the overall matching fails, no matter what I write.  It seems that some mapping table
is missing or incorrect ...
