1. luatools is a context command. Nothing you do with command that will
make lualatex work, for that you need 'mkluatexfontdb' (iirc).

2. If you installed context, the 2011 pretest installer should have run
mtxrun --generate automatically, and that would have prevented the above
'unknown script' message from every happening. Since it did not, can
you please explain what you installed *exactly* so I can try to reproduce?

No, it is quite definitely not the *same* problem, but for you as well:
please run
   mtxrun --generate
by hand, and that should fix the problem.

Best wishes,
