looks like it's simply some path problem. IIRC Tedy tells of 2 cases: In
one PC/Win system pdftex finds the font, then the PDF file is ok. In the
other it obviously doesn't find it, then the PDF file is broken. Simply
needs checking where the font file is in both systems. A kpsewhich
something.pfb helps.

Tedy, can you locate the font (.pfb) file by such a kpsewhich call?
