I've found a more simple way.
The following commands can install the font files.

$ wget --content-disposition 
$ mkdir -p ~/.local/share/fonts
$ tar xfvz urw-core35-fonts-79bcdfb.tar.gz -C ~/.local/share/fonts

But, I think that the simplest way is to distribute the tarball at the LilyPond 

And change the warning message of configure script.
(download tarball from
and extract it under '~/.local/share/fonts' etc., or use --with-urwotf-dir)

If I understand correctly, there is no requirement that can be deleted.

`texlive-lang-cyrillic` is for Texinfo. It is not for LilyPond snippets.
The URW++ fonts are for LilyPond snippets.
