Unfortunately that's not enough:

python scripts/setisFixedPitch-fonttools.py src/LiberationMono-*.ttf
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "scripts/setisFixedPitch-fonttools.py", line 31, in <module>
    from fontTools import ttLib
ImportError: No module named fontTools
Makefile:58: recipe for target 'ttf-dir' failed

The problem is that you are using the python modules shipped by fonttools,
and these are now provided for Python3 instead of Python2.
