I don't know how much space you have on your HD, but if you do
yum list available | grep -i font > font_list
and install the resulting fonts (some for sure unnecessary),
it adds approx 100MB (at least on my system).  You then have all
official fonts installed.  I have not received any font complaints
since doing this.  Overkill?  Maybe.  But surely no worse than having
i18n for myriad languages I don't speak or read installed for every
package.

I had the rpmfusion repositories enabled when I did this as well, so I
picked up any fonts that have encumbrances associated with them.

One possible solution.
