i don't even have a clue what cont-en.exe and context.exe are .. at least i never had them here; 

texmfstart.exe is just ruby2exe applied to texmfstart.rb; this is more robust that putting all needed libs into the tree as well since the location of the biinaries is unrelated to the tex tree in most installations; btw, the texmfstart.exe file is in the cont-win zip  

(on windows, when one has ruby installed, due to filename association one  can add scripts/context/ruby to the path and then no stubs are needed but this is no alternative for tex live)
