I'm sorry for too vague instructions.

You should have tried "./luatex --version" (or any other binary like
pdftex, xetex etc.), but see also below. "context" is just a symlink.

I don't know that error.

The idea would be to try to run
    ./luatex --version
and it would either work or fail, but the failure you mentioned is weird.

You can try:
    svn co http://svn.contextgarden.net/suite-bin/tex/armel-linux
    cd armel-linux/luatex
    ./luatex --version

For TeX Live you could try:
    svn co svn://tug.org/texlive/trunk/Master/bin/armhf-linux
    cd armhf-linux
    ./luatex --version
(or do some sparse checkouts to save bandwidth)
