You seem to have found the cause of the problem.  From the command line:

jackson% locate 8r.enc

jackson% cd /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/enc/dvips/psnfss/

jackson% ls -l
total 16
-rw-r--r--  1 501  staff  4864 13 Nov  2002 8r.enc

jackson% kpsewhich 8r.enc

So, it is there and it is about the proper size, but kpsewhich cannot 
find it .  I also ran texhash, but that didn't help:

jackson% sudo texhash
texhash: Updating /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /var/tmp/texfonts/ls-R...
texhash: Done.
