nope. ardour doesn't have one (we provide no facilities for the user to
choose fonts). GTK has one, but unfortunately it isn't part of the
"canonical" gtk-demo application. so, time to fall back on the fontconfig
command line utilities, particularly fc-list which should have been built
and installed in ~/gtk/inst/bin or wherever your GTK install put  binaries.
