In the 5.5.5 Release Notes:
http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/5_5_5/LiveCodeNotes-5_5_5-Android.pdf

"In LiveCode 5.5 the ability was introduced to allow applications to bundle
custom fonts which then
become available to the app (and only that app) while it is running.  To
take advantage of this feature, all you need to do is reference the files
of any fonts you wish to include in the Copy Files pane. These files can
either be a direct file reference, or contained in one of the folder
references.  The Standalone Builder will treat any files that end with the
extension ttf or ttc as font files to use in this way.  Any fonts included
in this way will appear in the fontNames and can be used in the same way as
any other font on the system."
