That's nonsens. Render Mathematica's Text[] need a copy of the
full typesetting engine to display 


correct. But just simple labels like \[Phi] and \[Rho]
need atleast the Mathematica fonts. Until the fonts
are not free available or MathGL3d is distributed with
Mathematica I will not include text. Because distributing
MathGL3d without the fonts, when it need the fonts will 
influence the stability of the full program.
