[NTG-context] Upgrading...

I must be making this way too complicated, anyway...

I placed C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\bin ahead of TeXLive in my NT PATH (Windows 
2000) so those binaries get called first. I tried to make the aleph format:

C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\web2c>aleph --ini *plain \dump
This is Alephk, Version 3.141592-1.15-2.1-0.0-rc4 (Web2c 7.5.3) (INIALEPH)
 %&-line parsing enabled.
Copyright (c) 2002--2004 the Aleph task force
entering extended mode
(c:/ConTeXt/texmf/tex/plain/base/plain.tex Preloading the plain format: codes,
registers, parameters, fonts, more fonts,
! Font \preloaded=manfnt not loadable: Metric (TFM/OFM) file not found.
<to be read again>


It works fine in TeXLive.

Another problem: how can I have both the aleph and the pdfetex formats?

texexec --make en -tex=aleph

overides the default cont-en.fmt made by

texexec --make

Question: how can I configure mktexlsr so that it updates both C:\ConTeXt as 
well as C:\TeXLive?
