[NTG-context] character redefinition environment

I want to assign Metapost graphics to single letters (in a newly defined
evironment, that take care of these assignments). The purpose is being
able to rapidly build huge tables containing lots of these symbols.
Everything works fine if I assign these graphics to non-letters, e.g.
"|", but somehow it doesn't work with normal letters.
Here is what I tried (with a simple Foo instead of Metapost graphics):
This works with | as reassigned character without any problems. But, we
want to have normal characters in the table, no punctuation marks, etc.
Does anyone know what to do to reassign a special definition for a
letter e.g. like uppercase B or else?
I got this error:
! Undefined control sequence.
\startmychars ...up \catcode `\B=\active \defB
which seems to indicate that B is not recognized as active character in
Any hints very welcome,
