I do not understand this. Do you mean that the components are not in 
the output?

It is pretty hard to guess. Does your product file look like this

\startproduct product-name

\environment env-name

\component component-1
\component component-2


Maybe the components are not getting loaded. To actually see which 
files are being loaded, look at product.tui file. The enteries 
starting with f tell you which files are being read. What does the 
output of

grep "^f" product.tui

look like?
