Try to add

the line

p +pbb.map

in your config.ps file

and the line

map +pbb.map

in your pdftex.cfg file

Beware : more than one config.ps or pdftex.cfg file could exist in your
installation : you have to modify the good files.

MBembo is the postscript name of the font (declared internally). It should
not be changed. Bembo.pfb is the name of the file

if your map entry is

pbbr8r MBembo "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <pbbr8a.pfb

You have to rename Bembo.pfb in pbbr8a.pfb or to modify the map file

pbbr8r MBembo "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <Bembo.pfb
