Well, maybe I'm missing something. But if you need to use ConTeXt on a mac you can use Gerben's distro, which also set up a crontab for you, and when you update it simply does all the boring stuff for you (I hate TeX tree structure ...)
Fair enough. I'm not sure, however, how that all plays out when it comes to using something like TeXLive (on a Mac, as if that matters) and the meta-issue of keeping a working TeX install coherent (and working)...
