Great! Everything is working now. I've successfully generated the six
Adobe Minion Cyrillic fonts with lining digits. Additionally I will
try generate the files with oldstyle digits (with virtual fonts).

The nice stuff is that MAP & FD files are correctly generated, see

I will also try to generate the files with T2A encoding ...

Thank you very much and best regards,
Ulrich Dirr

P.S. here is the source
--- minion-cyr.tex -----------------------------------------
\input fontinst.sty
% the next two files and cyrillic.mtx are from the t2 package
\input fnstcorr
\input cyralias

       #1\csname g-#2\expandafter\endcsname
      #1\csname g-#2-not\expandafter\endcsname
%  \else
% error: glyph not set






\input finstmsc.sty
\input pmn-map
