htex386 from emTeX is not a poor little tex! It allows changing of the 
memory layout. The critical part here is the save size. This can be 
increased up to 16000 with htex386 (which, I believe, is more than in
tetex 0.4); however, putting -ms2000 was always enough for my working
with fontinst. See the TeXbook and the file tex.doc in the emtex-
distribution for more details.
Best regards,

P.S. However, to use all the goodies around fontinst, you will sooner or 
later move to some UNIX-based tex.
