It's also the font the docs are in on Windows and Mac, just as a data point.

You can do this already actually with the Profile Manager. All you need to
do is set up a profile for each object whose fontsize is set - one profile
for Mac and one for Windows in this case - and then choose the appropriate
profile in Distribution Builder when you're building the standalone.

It's not completely automatic, but you only need to do it once, and in most
stacks you won't need to do it for many objects - just those whose font
size you've set.
