Not unless you want arabic-fonts to be a meta-package which includes
both packages. However, since both are their own packages and both are
released separately it would be a maintenance nightmare to do both in
one rpm package. I suggest arabic-fonts package is renamed to ttf-kacst
and the Arabeyes font to ttf-arabeyes (or however RH/Fedora likes to
call ttf font packages). I'm not sure if RH/Fedora have the concept of
meta packages, but if they do, it would be nice to then have an
'arabic-fonts' meta package.
