I mistakenly thought that I was expecting 8a on the end for ec encoding. I do have ec-utmr8a.tfm manufactured by texfont by type-tmf.dat dated 11/9/01 even thought the overall context is 23/10/02.
8a means the original encoding of the AFMs. texfont takes this basename and precedes this with a ec- for a T1 (ec) encoded font. This is the ConTeXt/texfont naming scheme. If you stick to the Berry naming scheme then this font will be 8t in T1 encoding, 7t in OT1 and there are some more, see fontinst.[dvi|ps|pdf] on CTAN. Normally the T1 encoded fonts are already on your system due to the LaTeX PSNFSS (PostScript New Font Selection Scheme) has already installed it. Thus you don't need to install them again using texfont, the only thing to do is to tell ConTeXt that the Berry fontnames have to be used. This is exactly what \usetypescript[berry][ec] does.
