Ok, I've got 2.2.1 running...

ok, there are tfm files there, produced by the beta TeXFont, in 
TeXLive\texmf-local\...

But now I can't seem to repeat this with the latest version, and TeXFont does 
not find the afm files. As I told Taco:

===========================================================
C:[...]\system_fonts>C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\bin\texfont 
--vendor=microsoft --collection=timesnewroman --encoding=texnansi 
--pattern=times*.afm --rootlist=C:[...]\system_fonts

TeXFont 2.2.1 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 2000-2004

mktexlsr: Updating c:/TeXLive/texmf-local/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Done.
       encoding vector : texnansi
           vendor name : microsoft
           source path : .
       font collection : timesnewroman
       texmf font root : c:/texlive/texmf-local
       pdftex map file : texnansi-microsoft-timesnewroman.map
      processing files : all in pattern times*.afm
    locating afm files : using otf files
    processing aborted : no afm files found
===========================================================

But the afm files are right there in \system_fonts!?!

Any further suggestions will be appreciated!
