Than canyou explain what exactly this program does?

Probably, yes.

check 'xftcache' code than.
It exactly scans all directories, and says "Can't find xxxx" if it can't find 
some folder with fonts.

It seems function you want to find is located in glibc, or other system

May be, you should ask <Xpert> (XFree86) list?
