  EXTRA_DIST += $(dist_fonts)

        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) dist dist_fonts='font1 font2 font3'

Please ensure that you do not otherwise initialize the dist_fonts
macro in the Makefile, because then the override on the command line
won't work with all make implementations any more (with GNU make, it
will still work).
