Seems I'm a slacker at heart. Sorry for the delay. Anyway:

1. the source is in macosx zip format. Since the people in charge of rpm and
unzip refused to fix their support for osx zip archives, you need to perform
the un-zipping manually to avoid leaving a stray __MACOSX directory behind in
the build root (annoys people doing full-distro rebuilds). Use something like:

%setup -q -c -T
unzip -j -L -q %{SOURCE0}

(the gfs font packages have the same problem)

2. Microsoft considers faces in modern font families should only differ on
weight, width or slope) and a lot of software is confused by anything else.
Therefore, the shadow face should be split in a
woodardworks-laconic-shadow-fonts subpackage IMHO, making it a multi-family

3. the font is definitely sans-serif, your fontconfig file should declare it

The rest of the packaging seems fine
