I jut tried to compile a document with texexec, but here's the weird thing:

> which texexec
> which pdftex
> which mtxrun
> pdftex --version
pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 (TeX Live 2015)
> texexec foo.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 (TeX Live 2015/MacPorts
2015_3) (preloaded format=cont-en)
 \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode

ConTeXt  ver: 2013.06.07 17:34 MKII  fmt: 2015.9.15  int: english/english

system          : foo.top loaded
bodyfont        : 12pt rm is loaded
! Font \*12ptrmtfrm*:=ec-lmr12 not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.

I have a hard time understanding what exactly is going wrong. Why does
ConTeXt (texexec) call another instance of pdftex from somewhere at
the end of PATH?

My only explanation could be that some fmtutil is called along the way
and fmtutil doesn't exist in minimals.

Thank you,
