You are doing nothing wrong.  There is a bug in ly2dvi that prevents it from
finding the pfa fonts. I have sent in a patch, which I am including with this
email, that fixes the problem.

I'm using 1.7.9 -- after the initial installation, I've made the pfa fonts with "make pfa-fonts && make pfa-fonts install".

When I issue the 'ly2dvi -p' command, I get:

"ly2dvi: warning: Trying create PDF, but no PFA fonts found.
 Using bitmap fonts instead. This will look poorly"

Any clues as to what I'm doing wrong?
