It is not necessary to rely on only the system font collection, even
when using WinAPI forms:
Something similar is done in C++.

Admittedly there does seem to be some confusion about whether you can
make certain UI objects (non-GDI+, specifically) take on face of these
fonts, but I suspect you can, as it seems that there is a common
underlying graphics system that the old APIs use. Even if not it would
be possible to distribute an open font with Lazarus/the LCL and
install it when Lazarus/the LCL is installed.
