It seems to be unanswered and now I stumbled upon a similar problem.  I want to have a figure with a caption together in a frame as wide as the surrounding text, aka \textwidth and the caption filling the available horizontal space.  I.e. I want something like
> \setupcaption[width=\textwidth]
> \starttext
> \placefigure[here]{\input tufte}{\externalfigure[cow]}

Found this in my mail archive:

% engine=pdftex




\section{A figure with a background}

    {\placefloatcaption[figure]{A dutch mill}}}


It works only with MkII because \placefloatcaption isn’t yet rewritten for the new MkIV code.
