OK - it's a bit blind leading the blind here, but perhaps a font-person will step in at some point.

You can get all the fonts on your system with the following command:

lilypond -dshow-available-fonts x > fonts.txt 2>&1

It'll redirect the output to fonts.txt and you can view it in your favourite file editor.

The PostScript file is clearly calling for 4 fonts:

%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font CenturySchL-Bold
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font CenturySchL-Roma
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font Emmentaler-20
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font Verdana

My guess is that you don't have one of them on your system.

You can mess around with using different fonts with:

\paper {
myStaffSize = #20
#(define fonts
(make-pango-font-tree "Times New Roman"
"Courier New"
(/ myStaffSize 20)))

(as you probably know). I would try using, say Arial, as your Sans font and see what happens with your .PS file.
