Completely untested - but attached is what I would probably do for a
Fedora(ish) system.

Yes it results in the rpm owning some directories owned by other rpms as
well - that's generally not a problem.

It also tries to make the fonts available to the system in general via
fontconfig (completely untested) - Lucida fonts are the most gorgeous
fonts I've ever seen as far as a series goes, might as well make good
use of them :)

I can't test until January, but maybe someone else can.
