[OS X TeX] Revisiting Using Hoefler Text Inside TeX

Last year there was a thread entitled "Using Hoefler Text Inside TeX", 
around May.

I followed what was mentioned in the thread (use fontforge, ttf2tex, 
edit the pdftex.cfg, and then a sample file). I ended up with a 
document that uses Hoefler Text. Unfortunately, the various ligatures 
(e.g., ff) appear as their un-ligatured (?) form.

Any advice?

And yes, XeTeX does handle this well,though noticeably slower than 
pdflatex. Since others were successful in this last year, I thought I 
would ask.
