Just to point out: pcrr8r (note the last "r") is not Adobe Standard
Encoding. It is "TeXBase1Encoding" and (for some characters) a
re-encoding is required. Metapost doesn't do re-encoding, though dvips
and pdftex will if the MP output is included in a .tex document.

Courier in the Adobe standard encoding is pcrr8a, but using that will
not bring up Courier if prologues is > 0 because there is no name
mapping in psfonts.map for pcrr8a. It would also likely cause dvips and
pdftex problems as well.
