B&W in a dark room. 3 or 4 hours to produce 4-6 poor prints...

B&W is what I miss about film. I was pretty good in the darkroom and still haven't gotten results from digital that = what I got with B&W film. Color? Yes digital is great and like you I hated color neg film because God only knows what you would get back from the lab. Slide film was nice but again, hard to get a good print from. But B&W imho still looks very nice from film.

Give Silver Efex 2 a try.

The problem I have isn't making a nice B&W conversion, it's getting a print that has the look of a nice fiber B&W print.

The two go hand in hand.  That said, take a look at Piezography inkjet printing.  It uses 7 shades of black and with a Baryta paper, you'll have the fibre look you're after.  I find it can have the dMax of a gelatin silver print, while having the long tonal midrange and texture of a platinum palladium print.
