The variable TEXMFCNF in texmf.cnf, if that was your question. But I
guess that you already do that for the sake of kpathsea being able to
find texmf.cnf in /etc.

In principle it means that you will only need to adjust a few
variables in texmfcnf.lua, no need to patch mtxrun or anything else.

But please not that we first need a working version of luatex for Hans
and then Hans will apply a few patches to ConTeXt. So you need to wait
for a new version of ConTeXt first before you can try it out.
