The font encoding is the problem. In 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/map/dvips/lucida you have two 
sets of map files that assign a file name to a font name. Part of the 
font name is its encoding. Obviously the UNIX (Mac OS X is UNIX too) 
TeX installations are a bit more open then those for windows giving you 
the freedom to choose between different input and output encodings. The 
usual T1 or TeXBase1Encoding is used on UNIX (since ever), on Windows 
LY1 or TeXnANSIEncoding has evolved through input from font vendors and 
was set as standard in the format files.

If you're sure that you always will be using LY1 than you could adjust 
the formats so that they use LY1 as output encoding -- but I can't tell 
you by heart how to change this, and where! On the other hand you can 
change your template file(s) that it (they) include(s) the line


from the beginning ...
