xdvi (and dvips) can't find the lilyponds

I'm trying to get lilypond working, and I'm pretty much stuck.  When I
first installed lilypond yesterday, everything seemed to be working
fine, but after loging out then in again, it can no longer find the
fonts.  I still have copies of fonts from yesterday around as pk
files, so if I run xdvi in the same directory it works fine, but if
not, I get junk output.

I'm running on lilypond-1.4.6 on redhat7.1.  I compiled from source,
didn't install an rpm.  ly2dvi seems to work fine, when Itry to run
xdvi I get errors like:

11:43am 59> kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode ljfour --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 
--dpi 600 feta20
gsftopk: fatal: dvips config file `' not found.
mktexpk: Running mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1+0/600; nonstopmode; input feta20
This is METAFONT, Version 2.7182 (Web2C 7.3.1)

kpathsea: Running mktexmf  feta20
! I can't find file `feta20'.

<*> ...ur; mag:=1+0/600; nonsttopmode; input feta20
Transcript written on mfput.log.
grep: feta20.log: No such file or directory


Looking around, there are a bunch of feta files installed under
/usr/local/share/lilypond, so it's somehow a question of making xdvi
(mktexmf, gsftopk, etc) see these files.  There doesn't seem to be a with lilypond, should there have been?

Any ideas or help would be most appreciated.
