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.
