There is a unit called uglyfont.pas included in Lazarus. I ported it some
time ago for an imgui implementation example. This is a simple vector font.
You can also implement a freetype font fairly easy. In fact I can share
some code. Just search for NeHe and you will find it online as well.

Although GLUT came with standard fonts I am not inclined to include a font
in GLPT soon. Same for menu, UI and other drawing stuff. This should be
handled one level higher up.
