That would be the difficulty, I believe. (not the . which is surely a
typo, but the directory name, ``bembo'').

AIUI, one wants the directory name to match the font name (in accordance
with the Karl Berry fontname scheme), so you want to put the pbbb8r.tfm
file in the /fonts/tfm/adobe/pbb directory, and the other files in like
directories (which is to say, rename your ``bembo'' directories to
``pbb''). Don't forget to re-up-date the filename database.
