You need to download the various files from CTAN.

They are in /tex-archive/macros/generic/diagrams/xypic

or  ftp://ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/generic/diagrams/xypic/

The XY-pic homepage is at

I think these are the ones Tom fixed up.  Sorry to sound so vague

has the appropriate .pfb xypic ps fonts.
