Different EPS exported file from frontend and kernel

I am using Mathematica for Students 4.2 on Red Hat Linux 8.0.  The
following command produces a satisfactory output when executed from
the command line but when run in the Mathematica frontend, it produces
an EPS file where the y-axis label looks like: "Exp@xD"

Export["plot.eps", Plot[ Exp[x], {x,-1,1}, AxesLabel -> {"x",
        "Exp[x]"} ]]

Furthermore, the eps file produced by the frontend cannot be used with
dvips: I get the error

  dvips: ! Couldn't find header file Mathematica2Mono.pfb

Indeed, this file does not exist on my system.

I _think_ I have followed all the instructions from Jens-Peer Juska's
"The Mathematica Virtual Font Package" document distributed with
Mathematica but that doesn't seem to help.
