[NTG-context] Can I use mkii and mkiv side by side?

I have a standard ConTeXt project setup (products, environment, chapters subdirectory). In the chapters subdirectory there is a Makefile. I’ve just installed mkiv. Can someone tell me what I need to change in this Makefile to compile my project with mkiv instead of mkii?
