Usually it is advisable to tweak at least a couple of variables
(TEXMFCNF in the TeX sources might be one of them, but the change is
not always needed), but it all depends on the distribution and how
they organize the files.

Even the standard TeX Live installation (including MacTeX) often does
some modifications.

The main problem is that developers usually make sure that LaTeX works
and (understandably) forget about ConTeXt.
