No, it is not. It's illegal to redistribute Apple fonts, just like
Microsoft fonts. I'm the maintainer of the ttf-ms-win8 and did some
research on that. AUR package should not contain download links for such
fonts, take a look how I did it for my package.

This package source links:
http://ompldr.org/vNXFlNA — illegal

On the other way, the approach of
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/tt/ttf-mac-fonts/PKGBUILD and
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/tt/ttf-mac/PKGBUILD is good. No sources
in AUR.

So one definetely should merge and rework them to provide great Apple fonts
package, but I don't have Mac and cannon do it myself.
