Please do not ask me how that was possible. I have created
cont-sys.tex and it automagically started to work. When comparing the
logs I have found out the following line:

system          : cont-sys.rme loaded
bodyfont        : 12pt rm is loaded

and then discovered that there was a file cont-sys.rme present in the
folder. But I have no idea how it came there nor where it came from as
it's considerably different from the one in distribution:

%D \module
%D   [       file=cont-sys,
%D        version=1995.10.10,
%D          title=\CONTEXT\ Miscellaneous Macros,
%D       subtitle=System Specific Setups,
%D         author=Hans Hagen,
%D           date=\currentdate,
%D      copyright={PRAGMA / Hans Hagen \& Ton Otten}]
%C This module is part of the \CONTEXT\ macro||package and is
%C therefore copyrighted by \PRAGMA. See mreadme.pdf for
%C details.

Thanks a lot for the valuable remark,
