Without relying on OS X Server, can anyone tell me how to mount a share point at /Network/Library Fonts and have OS X recognize this as an endorsed font repository in FontBook? You may use any other directory service or policy management.

I figured this out myself. You have to use auto mount to mount an NFS share at /Network/Library on the client. Once this is configured, reboot. Then navigate to /Network/Library in Finder, and the system will then recognize this as a useable Library within the Network domain.

If you have a folder called Fonts (case-sensitive) in here which has read-write permissions, Font Book.app will recognize the folder.
