I have some plaintex code to run from the ConTeXt beta-distribution, because I

It looks if I am on the wrong track for using luatex with plain. Will someone 
please be so kind to turn me in the right direction?

mtxrun --script plain --make

While you’re at it, could you please report back whether this
succeeds immediately or bombs out like so:

     Preloading the plain format: codes, registers, parameters, fonts, more 
     ! Font \preloaded=manfnt not loadable: metric data not found or bad.
     <to be read again>

you can just hit return then ... for some reason manfnt is not in the distribution
