Then I'm afraid you're on your own. I have had all sort of problems,
generally related with encodings, when using FontForge. The only time
I saw FontForge working flawlessly is in the scripts that Gerben
wrote for converting the Type 1 Latin Modern fonts to Mac format
during the installation of the TeX i-Package.
There's been probably an error either during the conversion, or when
creating the LaTeX support files. Did you try to use afm2tfm, as
explained in the tutorial I once initiated, to create LY1-encoded
(aka TeX-'n-ANSI-encoded) metrics for the font, instead of using the
T1/TS1-encoded metrics created by fontinst? I have found LY1
generally much more reliable and easier to use than T1/TS1 in the past.

Or is it simply possible that, with the metrics you created, you used
in your LaTeX source file:
but forgot to use:
which defines \textsterling.
A simpler solution would be to use gtamacfonts for Optima, but that
leaves the question for Garamond unsolved. And there's XeTeX, of course.
