[NTG-context] standalone / setuptex on ARM

when setting up Context for my phone, I noticed the ARM binaries
that come with the Standalone don’t work because the system is
armv7l soft-float:

    $ gcc -v
    Using built-in specs.
    Target: arm-linux-gnueabi
    Configured with: ../src/configure -v --with-pkgversion='Debian 4.6.3-14' --with-bugurl=file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-4.6/README.Bugs --enable-languages=c,c++,fortran,objc,obj-c++ --prefix=/usr --program-suffix=-4.6 --enable-shared --enable-linker-build-id --with-system-zlib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --without-included-gettext --enable-threads=posix --with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/include/c++/4.6 --libdir=/usr/lib --enable-nls --with-sysroot=/ --enable-clocale=gnu --enable-libstdcxx-debug --enable-libstdcxx-time=yes --enable-gnu-unique-object --enable-plugin --enable-objc-gc --disable-sjlj-exceptions --with-arch=armv4t --with-float=soft --enable-checking=release --build=arm-linux-gnueabi --host=arm-linux-gnueabi --target=arm-linux-gnueabi
    Thread model: posix
    gcc version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-14)

Since I’m supplying my own Luatex binary that’s no problem per
se, I just had to modify setuptex a bit.

Could we add a couple lines like the attached patch to the
script? I’m under the impression that “armel” is a Debian
specific term so feel free to change it. Though it might be
better in general to use the “arm-linux-gnueabi” and
“arm-linux-gnueabihf” triplets to separate the platforms.
