Thank you for clarifying - I wasn't sure if the OP was also talking
about an issue with the code editor. However, I think inclusion of
fonts in the LCL might make sense if it is found that system fonts are
lacking for popular platforms.

The LCL is (to my knowledge) linked in to applications generated with
Lazarus and never installed separately. Some toolkits for other
languages, installed separately, ship with (optional) resource files.
Compiling in the resources to every program which uses the LCL is a
bit different, but the same principle.
