Generally, the leading directories aren't required, setup should be
creating all parent directories regardless.

If you remove your /etc/X11/fontpath.d and just (re)install
xorg-x11-fonts-Type1, does this occur? (It shouldn't.)
The first thing that should be checked is if the code in setup which
allows it to unpack files with "illegal" characters in Windows also
makes sure to create parent directories. Based on these reports my
*guess* is it doesn't but I haven't looked yet.
