As the others already have reported, yes, it is; but it is not in gwTeX.
For these check ups, I've tried the option of kpsewhich that I've learned 
today, without having to switch the TeX distribution:

roussankas-computer:~ rosi$ texdist --texdist=TeXLive-2007 "kpsewhich fver8a.pfb"
roussankas-computer:~ rosi$ texdist --texdist=gwTeX "kpsewhich fver8a.pfb"
roussankas-computer:~ rosi$
