That's only the PRETTYBOX program (from Rick Westerman at Purdue, also
in EGCG 8.0). GCG 's own programs run on all supported graphics systems.

PRETTYBOX is special because it shades backgrounds, and you can't do that
kind of thing properly on pen plotters.

Strictly speaking, PRETTYBOX doesn't use graphics, it writes a Postscript
output file. But if it sees you are using PostScript output in GCG, then
that's where it sends the results.
