[XeTeX] Re: Is context working in XeTeX?

Maybe I am just really dense, but my 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/context/config/ doesn't have a 
texexec.ini it has a texexec.rme and that file has no line like

for  tetex  set  TeXPassString  to -progname=context 

I also did texexec --verbose and it indicated that it was using 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/context/config/texexec.ini which has 
no line like the above. I just updated my GWTeX install today and 
updated Context through i-Installer as well. I also downloaded 
http://www.pragma-ade.nl/context/current/cont-tmf.zip and looked at the 
texexec.ini in there it does not seem to have the

for  tetex  set  TeXPassString  to -progname=context 

line. What am I missing? It is probably something stupid, but I think 
I've checked about everything I can.

I did get a warning that the version of Context in GWTeX was 2004.10.24 
and that the version I just installed 2004.11.28 would be used, but 
this does not seem to be the case if the texexec.ini is coming from
