Sorry dude, I'm with Mats here.  Does pdflatex work?  Alternately,
does lilypond-book +dvips work if you omit the --pdf ?

If the answer to those two question is 'yes', then I say we don't
have any problem here whatsoever; if it wasn't supposed to work,
then I don't care if it doesn't.  Don't forget that you added a
bunch of texlive packages; maybe that fixed something that was
broken on your computer?
