[NTG-context] trouble generating mkiv format

On generating the format with "luatools --ini --compile --verbose  
cont-en" I got this error:
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [pool size=93529].

It seems that the setting of TEXMFCNF given in mag12 (/tex/texmf- 
local/web2c) was insufficient for getting the setup parameters for  
TeX format generation.

For my texlive setup I translated the mag12 entry into:

But at least I needed:
I hope others may profit from this observation.

By the way, the following seems very strange as luatools tells me:
LuaTools | loading /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
LuaTools | skipping /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c/texmf.cnf

The name of the file in the context distribution however is "/usr/ 
local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c/context.cnf" but it is not searched for!
COULD THIS BE A MISNOMER, either in a script or in the file name?
