[texhax] OTF, FontForge, and Right Justification

I'm trying to make the Opentype font *MinionPro* usable by plain TeX. The
program FontForge, which runs under X on *NIX-systems, does the conversion
with a minimum of fuss, and the resulting .pfb and .tfm files are put into
the right places. And the typeface looks lovely in TeX files... except for
one thing. The paragraphs are all ragged-right rather than justified. This
isn't due to any formatting, either; it's as though TeX is using the wrong
set of information about letterspacing (although the kerning etc. looks
pretty good).

What has gone wrong here? How can I fix it?
