Some time ago I was posting the following problem.

If anybody else has the same problem, here is my solution:
pdftex uses a file pdftex.cfg, which contains amongst other things the names of
the map files. One of these files (  contains the mapping between
the short names (like pagk8r) and the long Postscript names (like
AvantGarde-Book). And this entry had a leading comment.
Removing the comment helped and now the fonts in my pdf files look as they
should :-)
(Reinstalling MikTex reintroduced the problem, so I guess this must be a
feature of MikTex ...)

There are few other problems now, but that is another story ..
