In the latest texlive 2008 developer snapshot (July 5), I'm having
trouble starting context:

  $ context
  MtxRun | unknown script: context

I followed the recommendation, gotten from the context mailing list, to


in texmf.cnf, but doing so has no effect (i.e., the same error arises).  

The luatools program also seems to be having trouble:

  $ luatools --generate
  LuaTools | variable SELFAUTOLOC set to /usr/local/texlive/2008/bin/i386-darwin
  LuaTools | variable SELFAUTODIR set to /usr/local/texlive/2008/bin
  LuaTools | variable SELFAUTOPARENT set to /usr/local/texlive/2008/bin/i386-darwin/
  LuaTools | variable TEXMFCNF set to {$SELFAUTODIR,$SELFAUTOPARENT}{,{/share,}/texmf{-local,.local,}/web2c}
  LuaTools | no cnf files found (TEXMFCNF may not be set/known)
  LuaTools | 
  LuaTools | runtime: 0.007 seconds

Any idea what might be going on?
