Exactly the same here, and it works perfectly. The conversion was not 
done by Fondu, but with t1unmac (included in i-Installer's TeX), as in:

	t1unmac -r LucidBri/rsrc lbr.pfb

Did you update the .map files as required? Namely, running in Terminal:

	sudo updmap --enable Map lucidabr.map
	sudo updmap --enable Map lumath.map
	sudo updmap --enable Map lucidabr-o.map
	sudo updmap --enable Map lumath-o.map

The first two files allow you to use, in TeX, Karl-Berry-style font 
names like hlhr8 (for LucidaBright), for text and math fonts, 
respectively. The following two files allow you to use the original 
names from Y&Y, namely lbr for LucidaBright etc., again for text and 
math fonts. These files live in 
/Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/map/dvips/lucida/ and 

Hope this helps,
