Unless you run Mac OS X on UFS. In that case, the resource forks are 
represented as normal files. Where the file name is foo, the resource 
fork is ._foo. That file is accesible on UFS.

What you could try is this:
	create a dmg
	format it as UFS and mount it
	copy the fonts over (using the Finder)
	then access the resource forks
