Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the Microsoft fonts on an
openSUSE 11.1 system that don't involve scripts of unknown origin, that
produce "a lot of error messages" and bypass the RPM system?

The license for the Microsoft fonts package does not allow your to repackage
them. In particular, you aren't allowed to turn the .cab into a .rpm. So,
you probably won't see such a method from a responsible distributor.
