thanks for the all the answers...

this all could be in the wiki thought, would save you/me mining the
archives :)  so i'll shamefully steal and put this info into the
openbsd upgrade page i just started :)

ok, seems like my last problem is about the fonts.  i must say the
wiki gets a bit controversial here:

http://wiki.contextgarden.net/TeTeX_3.0_installation says:

Install a Latin Modern font update

The Latin Modern fonts are still in development, so teTeX has a hard
time catching up. To get a stable system, you have to manually download
the [Latin Modern distribution] from ctan and install the package
according to the[instructions in the FAQ].

The ConTeXt-specific support files are included in Cont-tmf.zip, so it
is just a matter of installing the actual font files.

This was the Latin Modern release from CTAN, repackaged for an easier

It has disappeared since Context 2006.02.01

Note that teTeX distributions, from version 3.0, already have the lm
fonts: all you need do is use them. 

according to the wiki, i don't need cont-lmt.zip anymore.

according to the tex faq i already have them.

what now?   i downloaded the lm.tgz package, compared files, and
clearly, teTeX 3.0 files are old-old-old.

so i copied over the old files, run texhash, and lo and behold,
fonts are all right.

ok, the only problem i see at first glance is \"{o}
(long hungarian umlaut) is with a wave and not the proper umlaut.

could this be a problem with context's encodings?
i presume the lm fonts contain the right character...
it is certainly not that special :)
