Yes, but as I have set the environment variable TEXMFCNF I have
overwritten the normal behaviour.

Sorry this is a misunderstanding: I'm not trying to mix two context
versions. I want to use the standalone binaries with the standalone
trees, and perhaps the texlive context binaries with the texlive
tree. Beside this I also want to use miktex, texlive 2014, and
sometimes (for debugging) texlive 2013 ;-); 

Sorting out all this installations so that they don't interfer isn't
