Do you mean that it looks fuzzy or completely wrong?
I it looks fuzzy, it's just since you used the standard
bitmapped fonts. To get nice fonts in the PDF file, use
ly2dvi -p file.dvi
(assuming that you have Lilypond 1.6.x and that you 
built the Type1 fonts if you compiled the program yourself).
However, the standard bitmapped fonts shouldn't look fuzzy
in Ghostview unless you have played with the antialias 
settings or so.

Great, that's the main point, right?
