It is categorically impossible and should not be done. At most you can
use Suggests or Recommends; do not use Depends for fonts for X

X does *not* require that fonts be installed on the same host as the
client application, nor can it use them if they are. Fonts must rather
be installed on the host where the font server runs, which is probably
the one where the X server runs.
