The most sensible way of conversion is turn each Lucida TT font to two
PostScript TeX fonts, one has the usual Adobe Standard Encoding (8a),
the other takes care of all those extra glyphs in TT that are used by
the TeX encodings OT1, T1, and TS1. With fontinst you install the fonts
as a set of vf, tfm, fd, map, and, of course, pfb files.
For math you'll need some more excerpts as PS font files.
I'm quite through with text having two csh scripts that do it all. In
between I invoke tex to run on the fontinst file. Last weekend I came
across that the 'proof sheets' from fontsmple.tex and nfssfont.tex are
showing incorrect contents. Not many helpful answers yet ...
I can give you (and any other) all my software and short description of
how to do it.
The math setup I wanted to start this weekend. What is needed is a list
of glyph names taken from the OML, OMS, and OMX encodings and finding
the mappings to Unicode positions. For fontinst there are presumingly
extra ETX and MTX files needed that supply deviating Unicode glyph
names. I presume the number of all the real math glyphs (without
\mathcal taken from Zapf ChanceryMediumItalic or such, and maybe
without blackboard too) is more than 256 so we'd need more than one PS
font. Using this mapping file ttf2pt1 extracts that excerpt(s) from the
TT font into a PFB and and an AFM file (each) -- and you're almost
