A file "mfplain.mem" is required by mpost.
For the record ... in native TeX Live, mpost never, in general, required
mfplain.mem. It used to require mpost.mem. Similarly, mfplain (the
command) used to require mfplain.mem (the "format").
In current (TL'11) MetaPost, however, there are no .mem's at all.
Evidently you are using some distro's TeX Live. Not surprising things
$ mpost -ini '\input /usr/share/texmf-texlive/metapost/base/mfplain.mp; dump'
In native TeX Live, mfplain.mem was created automatically when running
the command mfplain the first time (or at installation time). When
.mem's were used.
To automate it, I wrote a script, now in the GNU FreeFont SVN, named
Happy font hacking,
