Nutshell: Create a (tiny) custom TCL extension which makes the system calls to load a font into the PrivateFont collection <http://code.activestate.com/lists/tcl-core/8159/> when the GUI is loaded.

I've had this approach listed in the original DejaVuSans mono PR for Windows since the beginning of the year: https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/42 <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/42>
