I copied some Windows ttf fonts to


then did

context --generate
context --make
mtxrun --script fonts --list

and the ttf fonts don't appear in the fonts db list.

What's missing ?

By the way, what's the difference between...

- context --generate      generate file database etc.
- luatools --generate     generate file database
