btxmac.tex, which is part of eplain, enables you to use bibtex from
plain tex.  there's a fair bit of eplain documentation, so look up the
eplain stuff in that.

which information extracted from
http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=bibplain (the faq, on
the whole, being pretty patchy about plain tex information -- this is
just one place where it provides something useful).
