I suspect Vladimir's cyrfinst cover cyrillic. The version on CTAN might be
a bit unsuitable for your needs though since the alias mechanism used isn't
compatible with the automatic map file writer, but that will be fixed in
fontinst v1.915. I sent Vladimir some modified files concerning that a
couple of months ago, but I haven't heard anything about it since.

As for other alphabets I don't know, but such files would certainly be nice
to have.
