Yes, I knew about that, and had already created the en and nl formats
(since I don't work with German documents at all, I don't need de, do

Just as a side note, why would the shell think the format is supposed to
be a command? That makes me wonder if there is some incorrect quoting in
the Perl script.

Could be, but it's never been necessary in the past. As I mentioned, I
have two working ConTeXt installations with no such command.

Yes, I suppose so.

Well, I've deleted all the old ConTeXt directories, reinstalled the new
version, copied the *.rme files to *.ini (or whatever they are supposed
to be ... I think), regenerated the 'en', 'nl', and 'metafun' formats,
and run texhash ... I'm still getting the same error.

I also ran a diff comparing the texmf.cnf from the new installation with
one from one of my working installation. The files are identical in
everything related to ConTeXt.

So, thank you both for your quick replies, but it looks like there's
some other problem.

BTW, this is a very new release of ConTeXt--June 16, according to the 
Pragma Web site. Has anyone used this version successfully?
