latex not finding the .tfm file after making it

*arghg*  this new installation is driving me nuts.

This all used to work with a 600dpi laser printer, tehn successfully 
converted to freebsd, and now it won't work again.

I have the environmental variables set as follows in .cshrc:

setenv TEXINPUTS "~/isuthesis/:"
setenv PKFONTS ":/home/hawk/fonts"

I have the following variants of parkavenue in /home/hawk/fonts:

ls ~/fonts/parkave*
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.1080pk    /home/hawk/fonts/parkave.afm
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.1200pk    /home/hawk/fonts/parkave.pfb
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.1440pk    /home/hawk/fonts/parkave.tfm
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.1800pk    /home/hawk/fonts/parkave10.1800pk
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.540pk     /home/hawk/fonts/parkave10.300pk
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.600pk     /home/hawk/fonts/parkave10.600pk
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.660pk     /home/hawk/fonts/parkave14.1800pk
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.720pk     /home/hawk/fonts/parkave14.300pk
/home/hawk/fonts/parkave.840pk     /home/hawk/fonts/parkave9.1800pk

But on running latex, I get

(/usr/lib/texmf/tex/latex/base/ifthen.sty)kpathsea: Running mktextfm  
mktextfm: Running mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input parkave

! Font \lawoffice=parkave at 14.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not 
<to be read again> 
l.23 \newfont {\lawoffice}{parkave at  14.0pt}

But parkeave.tfm is right there, and these same settings used to work.

I must be missing something really simple.  Any hints? :)
