No, fontinst will fake the missing ligatures. After all,
the vpl _does_ contain the faked fi ligature, as you told us.
Did you take a look at the resulting PostScript file with
GhostScript, on the screen? Does Ghostscript _show_ the
ligatures? Perhaps you can also try to _print_ the file via
Ghostscript (as opposed to the PS interpreter in the printer.)

This is not a problem. Just think of "8a" as "not reencoded".
