I think the bigger problem is that they're not versioned.o

I think your best option is to either create a separate package for each
font and then a 'meta package' which pulls them all together (like xfce
does) or to add all the fonts as origins in the inputs (like
java-cisd-base in gnu/packages/java.scm) and then install them manually
in the correct directory.
