Are you sure this is what is in the PS font, and not just what is the Mac
OS metrics for the font? Almost all printer drivers reencode fonts (i.e.,
supply a different encoding vector that what is built into the font), so if
you're using it via some platform-specific software, then it is likely that
you're being handed some encoding which is not built into the font.

As long as the glyph names are correct, you can simply reencode to 8r
(TeXBase1Encoding) and ignore the matter of whether the original encoding
was 8a (StandardEncoding (Adobe)), 8m (MacRomanEncoding), or some other
arrangement of pretty much the same glyph set.
