[dev-context] Help regarding Kpsewhich and mtxrun

Please correct me if i am wrong.
If kpsewhich is not used and replaced by mtxrun why is it included in context minimals??
Inside texexec file i find this line:
mtxrun --usekpse --execute texexec "$@"
Suppose say i type the following command.
texexec --pdf sample.tex
It will somehow call mtxrun which in turn will invoke 'texmfstart.rb' i guess.
The above command somehow invokes 'pdftex' which processes sample.tex file.
But pdftex is a binary how does it come to know about location of fonts and all other information unless there is some interface that is hard coded???
