Thanks. I installed fonts/tex-ec and upgraded to teTeX-texmf-3.0nb25. I 
didn't know about that new package.

Now I have a different error:

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 
mktexpk: Mismatched mode ljfour and resolution 600; ignoring mode.
mktexpk: Running mf-nowin -progname=mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1+0/600; 
nonstopmode; input ecbx0800
This is METAFONT, Version 2.718281 (Web2C 7.5.7)
I can't find the base file `mf.base'!
grep: ecbx0800.log: No such file or directory
mktexpk: `mf-nowin -progname=mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1+0/600; 
nonstopmode; input ecbx0800' failed to make ecbx0800.600pk.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.

With the missfont.log addition of:

mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 ecbx0800

Any ideas on that? I have a feeling I have an inconsistent install of 
the tex components.
