The front fence doesn’t need to be flat or parallel.
As for the rear fence only the working side needs to be flat which you can do on a planer, and it truly only needs to be straight which you can do with a hand plane it just takes a bit longer. If you’re 1/32 out of perfect straight over 24 plus inches your good to go.

If you want close to absolute buy an extruded billet of aluminum, maybe +/- .002.
