Put the license text file (I'm assuming it's not all that big) as %doc for each 
subpackage; it should end up in a separate directory under /usr/share/doc, thus 
eliminating any worry about file conflicts should someone update the license at 
any point and a user upgrade one font subpackage but not the other.
