Whoops - I did mean "all three of them" but now realize that there's
more than three.
I favor Christians approach - except that I suggest not dropping those
problematic fonts completely, but ship them outside of fontconfig paths
so as to allow using them when explicitly needed.
So in addition to rm'ing, I suggest to extend the *.install file with
something like this:
..and add a note to README.Debian on where those fonts are installed and
why they are not registered with fontconfig.

Those in need of rendering documents correctly which references but does
not embed those particular fonts.
