If you are packaging any flavor of TeX, you need to understand TDS (TeX Directory Structure): 

https://tug.org/tds/

ConTeXt distributions are TDS compatible, but simplify certain aspects. Essentially, context LMTX is distributed as a collection of TDS trees (texmf, texmf-context, texmf-linux, etc.) which separate the files according to their role. The purpose of texmfcnf.lua is to tell the binary about the location of the different trees.
