Thanks for noting this. Currently, there are menu entries for d.font and
d.font.freetype. But these don't work anymore in this context.

So I guess there needs to be a little TclTk dialog written that replaces
these. It would work kind of like the font selection part of the text layer
panel to set GRASS_FONT.
