[NTG-context] Possible problem with context using the ARM 64bit download for Apple Silicon M1

Hi all

I have been using ConTeXt (X86 64bits) on my mac mini Apple Silicon M1 
and it works well using Rosetta translation for the M1. I recently 
installed the ARM 64bits version (separately from the X86 64bits 
version) which I assume does not require translation using Rosetta. 
However I had a error with the lmt_shade command in the ARM 64bits 
ConTeXt verson but not in with the X86 64bits version of ConTeXt. The 
MWE is shown below. This is actually taken from the LuaMetaFun manual. I 
also noticed that some figures are missing in the manual (Chapter 7, 
Shade) which is part of the ARM 64bit tree but not in the manual in the 
X86 64bits tree.

Best Wishes
