You told us that you have got the Bitstream fonts (bfr),
so why did you download (and install?) the pfr stuff, too?

Did you exactly follow the instructions in bfr.tex? 
Did the the instructions actually suit your particular TeX system?

There is nothing wrong with the DVI.  
I can convert it successfully to dvips:

  dvips InstFuentesFrut

Did you get any error messages from pdfTeX?  
Why didn't you attach the log file from pdfTeX to your message?
Why do you think that log files are produced at all?
Did you expect that we are clairvoyant?

Instead, you have sent us a 300kB file, which has absolutely 
nothing to do with the present problem!  Besides, distributing 
large files over a mail list is not the most brilliant idea, 

InstFuentesFrut.pdf reveals that you are using pdfTeX 0.14f,
which is grossly obsolete.  While this does -- most likely -- 
not constitute the immediate reason of the problem, I suppose 
that you are using a very obsolete TeX system in general.  
Thus, the installation instructions in bfr.txt may not be fully
applicable to it.  However, as long as we do not even know 
what exactly you are using (teTeX?  fpTeX?  MikTeX?  version?), 
it is not possible to help you.
