I've found the charts developed by John Sexton for TMAX to be quite accurate. This includes development reduction information to reduce contrast. Using his chart will probably give you a good starting point.

Specific films may differ but as a general observation an increase in
exposure time to adjust for reciprocity failure needs to be
accompanied by a decrease in time of development to avoid too much
contrast. Good data sheets will generally suggest how much to cut
development depending on the amount of reciprocity adjustment.
I am not familiar with the requirements of poinhole photography with
regards to long exposures.
