You do realize that if you pull in the 'Graphics' unit of LCL, you don't
have a console app any more, but a GUI app.

I don't really know what you app does, but I would instead use FPImage
(from Free Pascal's FCL packages), and use freetype (also included with
fcl-image code). This will mean your app is not LCL dependent, and a
real console application.
