Don't know if it's already done but nothing changed on my side. I tried
to create symbolic links of all base/mkiv/ files into base directory.
Context is processing further but is stopped anyway. It complains it
doesn't find 'page-otr.lua' although the link is done. I also noticed
that context needed 'syst-rtp.mkiv' which I did not find in base/mkiv
but in base/mkii.

I do not know where to investigate more an I'm surprised I am the only
one concerned by this bug. Is it possible that an environment variable
could be responsible of this (I didn't change anything these last

Thank you for help.
