It seems the best and easy ones to install I found so far is FreeSerif and

Bravura was a pain to install, seems more powerful I guess? But FreeSerif
and Symbola get the job done more easily.

Ok, I know it's coming from somewhere else, and that's not the point.
Maybe a better question is to just make sure that this indeed happens (that
the Pd will look elsewhere in your fonts to see if you have a bass clef or
whatever else is missing in DejaVu). I just wanna get this straight, how it
happens and if it happens in all operating systems, before I tell people
that they can just install something like symbola that they'll be able to
display whole notes and whatnot in iemguis' labels.
