>> ZapfDingbats is in the LW35 collection, so your settings in updmap.cfg may prevent it being included in the ps. Assuming you are using a system-wide updmap.cfg, you could try

If dvipsDownloadBase35 is set to false in updmap.cfg (the default, I believe), you get exactly the behavior you describe because there is an entry in the system psfonts_t1.map that reads
which means that no attempt is made to include a font file---just use the name ZapfDingbats in the ps file. On the other hand, if dvipsDownloadBase35 is set to true, the line will change to
pzdr Dingbats <uzdr.pfb
which forces downloading of the URW clone of ZapfDingbats.
The only explanation I can see for why this step failed in your case is that you are not using a system-wide updmap.cfg, but have a personal version that prevents LaTeX from seeing the system-wide version. If the command
displays something in your home directory (like ~/.texlive2009/...) then this is the explanation. You can either dump the .texlive2009 directory or use the command
updmap --setoption dvipsDownloadBase35=true
to fix it temporarily. (There are problems with keeping a personal version of updmap.cfg. For example, you will lose the changes when a new TeXLive is installed, and updates made with TeX Live Utility to your distribution fonts will not seem to have any effect.)
