The question is also what happened to the text fonts included
in the file. The Lilypond specific files were certainly 
bitmapped unless you made a big effort to get the Type3 vector
fonts. Is your TeX system setup to give Type1 or bitmapped fonts
for ordinary text? Could it be that the error message complained
about that some fonts were bitmapped and others were vector fonts,
otherwise I don't understand it.
