you can just specify that GRASS should use a bold TrueType font, there's
usually bold versions of a given font in another file:


note the "bolding" GRASS text usually just shifts up&to the side 1
pixel & draws the text again, so it looks bolder but not necessarily
any clearer. I'd rather not spread that method into any more modules if
at all possible.
