So, while less than ideal from your standpoint of putting the definition of
the subpackage together with the call to the macro, does rearranging things
like this  do the trick?

[Package  info]
[subpackage info]

[prep stuff]

[build stuff]

[install stuff]

%_font_pkg -n 2 -f %{fontconf}-2.conf AccanthisADFStdNo2-*.otf

Since %_font_pkg is creating %files sections and %pre and %post sections,
that seems like both a valid workaround and where you'd look for those
declarations in a non-font package.
