one imagines that anyone who couldn't produce any output using adobe
standard encoding fonts would have complained.  (note that, unless
something else is wrong, you _could_ have used cm fonts and the like.)

if your installation really doesn't have 8r.enc, dvi output wouldn't
have worked either -- at the point when the fonts had to be loaded (when
printing or viewing) the same failure would have occurred.
