For the first font, a subpackage would be fine, even though you'll not I didn't
search for *.font files in repoquery, so those can rot in peace a little longer
(but a subpackage is always better than a private font)

For the second font it only says "Avatar font by C.J. Ellsworth" so you need to
track this person to get a proper license (OFL or GPL+font exception are good)

You can also try the http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ service to see if it
finds you a new contact.

The font is in Debian so you can ask Debian-side if they have a current

If you can't you have to drop the font in Fedora.

Spot may have other suggestions.
