[Mono-dev] gdiplus font rendering on a headless system

We are porting our ASP.NET app that was developed orginally on Windows (well
with linux as the target using mono).

The web app creates PNG images on-the-fly that are comprised of other bitmap
sections and dynamically created text using DrawString(...).

My question is - what is the minimum requirements for a headless server to
generate text using fonts? (I am not really an "X" guy - I prefer a shell
any day.)  This is going to be an embedded system so space is crucial - I
don't want a full fledge X server. So I would need Cairo, FreeType and ???
The error below is from our non-X install.

The GDIPLUS error is "*The requested FontFamily could not be found"*
