I agree with Petr. The problem is that pdftex.ini inputs now bplain.tex
instead of just plain.tex and such change was introduced in TL7 for CSTUG
(and teTeX-beta). I'd rather suggest adding pdfbplain.ini
and one more line to fmtutil.cnf:
#!pdfbplain      pdftex          language.dat    pdfbplain.ini

For the same reason as Petr described we use in Poland pdfmex format.
>From my side I can only add that including only hyphenation patterns
(and some simple tricks) is poor-man solution to typeset real language
specific texts (in the context of plain.tex based formats).
