IMHO, in such a scenario, it is acceptable to put a copy of the license
in each binary RPM. This will not cause conflicts, because it is the
same file in the same location. If this obsoletes the need for a -common
package, then do not create one.

However, the license may be embedded inside the font itself. Might be
worth poking it with FontForge to see. If it is, then this is not necessary.
