[OS X TeX] latin modern fonts problem

I'm running the latest carbon emacs and have installed MacTeX from the  
latest TeX Collection DVD, but I'm having problems running pdfLaTeX.  
When I compile my document it ends with the following error:

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi  
600 lmmi10
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for lmmi10.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
(see the transcript file for additional information)
!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file lmmi10): Font lmmi10 at 600 not found
  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

LaTeX exited abnormally with code 70 at Thu Feb 26 13:03:26

It seems the problem could be the Latin Modern fonts, or at least some  
of them -- are they not compatible with PDFLaTeX? I can't work out  
what character  'lmmi10' is to create a minimal example.

This very frustrating error comes after some time spent debugging the  
path problem (turns out I have to launch emacs via the terminal to  
make it inherit the correct path to use TeXlive) and I'm running out  
of tether, so any help is greatly welcome.
