The ‘pdfcrop’ command from TeXLive can do that for you on the command line.
It is based around ghostscript which can automatically find the crop area,
then uses pdftex,luatex,or xetex to create a new pdf.

It is doable to come up with a solution in ConTeXt if you do not mind
specifying the cropbox manually, but automatic cropping is probably too
hard for ConTeXt itself (and likely would end up duplicating pdfcrop
to some extent).

Best wishes,
