This is a standard font file that should be available if you have a complete teTeX installation. It's possible that SuSE has split the installation of teTeX into several separate packages and that you have to install some more of these. To be precise, all the cmbxti8.* files of a normal teTeX installation are created automatically on the fly the first time you use the font. If SuSE lets you search for which package contains a certain file, you should for example look for the file, which
normally is installed in /usr/share/texmf/fonts/source/jknappen/sauter/

To answer your direct question, the font is used for lyrics, among others.
Note also that the font handling is different both in LilyPond version 2.4 and
the coming version 2.6, compared to 2.2.
