Change output font for apps in xterm or TTY.

If I for example run this command
ifconfig | convert -background black -fill white label:@- ifconfige4.png
I get an image from the output of ifconfig.

I have changed the font in the cli (Konsole,xterm) - but the output gives the samt font in the .png.

How can I change the font in output from ifconfig.?.?

see man page of convert, it has a -font option. ifconfig itself do not use any font, it is displayed by xterm using a font, but it is not related to ifconfig or convert.
