| On my systems, teTeX-3 does not include a texmfstart executable.  One approach

| Earlier, I posted a script I have been testing to the list.  The
| script uses kpsewhich
| to find the .rb or .pl script corresponding to the name used to invoke
| the script, and then runs perl or ruby with the full path to the
| script.  This saves having to copy the scripts everytime you update
| context.

Thank you and Hans, I'll look for your script asa I go back to my other
machine; I must confess (no criticism) that I'm a bit surprised things
like that are left to every user to deal with, as the rest of context is
so elaborated.
