For the record, the remaining problem was a too old 

To summarize: To get Type1 fonts (nicely readable both on screen
and in print) for both music and text in a PDF version of a Lilypond 

- You need Ghostscript 6.0 or newer.

- Download and install Type1 fonts for Lilypond (today only
  available for Lilypond 1.4.0-1.4.6 at
  but my machine at home is building versions for 1.4.7 and 1.5.7
  right now, I'll make them available.)

- Call dvips with the additional flags 
  dvips -Ppdf

- If you use lilypond-book or your own wrapper files, 
  don't use \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} in the file header
  but don't forget \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} if you 
  use any üåäöç or other non-anglosaxian characters.
