FYI. You don't need to restart the system, as far as Lazarus application 
is concerned: it scans the font directories each time you launch the 
program. Customdrawn, (unless explicitly requested to use native fonts, 
but this is still not yet implemented, at least in Linux) performs a 
custom writing: it paints the text in the object canvas, and gives to 
the X server a full image to display. Therefore it can use fonts X 
server is not aware of, provided they're in a reasonable search path. If 
you change a font, the new font is loaded when the program is started again.
