Even though the macro implementation is currently fedora-specific, it has been
split in a self-contained small package with public releases so other distros
could pick it up if they liked it.

However, the general problem is just helping packagers to adapt to a fontconfig
world, and last I've seen all major distros were standardising on fontconfig
(inclusing non-linux ones) so I'd be real surprised if any distribution
complained of this check (you can replace %{_fontbasedir} with
%{_datadir}/fonts for the general upstream implementation if that makes you
feel better)
