I upgraded today my OBSD to 7.3 and… realized too late that texlive binaries were on the compile farm, but not the lmtx ones. That was the opportunity to learn self-install, though.
I compiled the binary, but I am stuck with the next step

What I did:

- rm -rf /usr/local/context/* (now I suspect I should have first updated my 7.2 installation and then, after upgrading to 7.3, compiled the binaries…)
- download  https://www.pragma-ade.nl/context/latest/cont-tmf.zip
- unpacked it into /usr/local/context (unzip cont-tmf.zip -d /usr/local/context/)
- cd /usr/local/context/source/luametatex
- ./build.sh --native

Compilation succeeded, looks like the binary lies in

What's the next step?
you should make


and put 5 files there:

context -> luametatex
mtxrun  -> luametatex

you can take the lua files from


or you can just rename the 7.2 path to 7.3 and move luametatex there

(of course you then also need to adapt your path to the new situation)
