Hm, to be root is not required -- have you found some problem ?


Usually, normal users do not have write permissions in /opt directory.
If we follow strict rules,  "normal" user should not  install the
latest context -- only the admin.

And hence Steve's remark that the installation instruction should differentiate between what needs to be dun as root and what as normal user (the user run context --make needs to have write permission in TEXMFCACHE).
