Another pass:

1. you're not defining fontname as intended by the template and as a result you
have weird package names such as gnu-free-fonts-mono-fonts instead of a nice
fontname shoud not have the same value as name or we would not bother with it

2. your fontconfig symlinks are broken
lrw-r--r--    1 root    root                       52 mars 14 19:35
/etc/fonts/conf.d/60-gnu-free-fonts-mono.conf ->
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root                      334 mars  5 21:46

It would probably simpler if you just used the symlinking logic proposed by the

3. Your compat package
Requires:  gnu-free-fonts-freemono-fonts = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:  gnu-free-fonts-freesans-fonts = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:  gnu-free-fonts-freeserif-fonts = %{version}-%{release}
But your srpm generates subpackages named differently, so it won't work

4. rpmlint points some minor problems
W: spelling-error-in-description compatability compatibility
E: description-line-too-long This package only exists to help transition pre
20090104-4 freefotn users to the new\
W: summary-not-capitalized freefont compatibility package
