How do you export a formula if you don't have a graphic front-end or a

If you have a front end available, you can write:

    Export["file.GIF", ToBoxes[/formula expr/], "GIF"]

If you don't, you can still export something that returns a raster

    Export["file.GIF", Plot[/graphable expr/], "GIF"]

If there's no special function (like Display[/formula expression/]) I
can put in the middle variable to convert a math expression to a nicely
drawn math formula, is there someway I can tell MathLink (my conduit to
the kernel) to grab the nearest graphical front end and have its way
with it?
