I changed the pdftex.cfg file in:

and made these changes, and then  pdftex recognized the fonts and
produced beautiful output!
(I guess I need to also change the config.ps file if I want to use
TeX and Ghostscript, but I haven't tried that out yet.)

Many thanks to everybody for your help.

There is one additional thing I would like to find out: my Bembo font
set contains a number of additional fonts, such as  oldstyle
nummerals fonts, a special small caps font, and various semi-bold
fonts. The pbb.map file (from xbembo) does not contain references to
these fonts. Is there an even more extended map file that does? If 
not, can anyone perhaps point out to me where I can find ou how to
let TeX access these additional fonts?

Thanks again,
