FPC includes a version of the Common Pascal interfaces, which also  
includes the Fonts unit. In general, it's however easier to add the  
FPCMacOSAll unit to your uses clause (as of FPC 2.2.2: MacOSAll), then  
you get all available interfaces at once instead of having to fiddle  
with different units to make sure you have all needed types available  
(because FPC doesn't support uses-propagation).
