Although this specific issue might have been solved meanwhile by the helpful 
suggestions of Wolfang, Thomas and others, I would like to point out that I 
have recently also encountered an odd behaviour of the mtxrun fontloader in the 
standalone, in which not all typefaces are available/properly identified.

(I’m sorry to hijack this thread if this is unrelated.)

Basically, when I load “Helvetica Neue”, I get instead of “regular/normal” 
always “light/italic”.

I have switched to heros for the meantime, but potentially there is some bug 
behind this. (My documents with the version from Dec/Jan worked fine.)

I recite my example from Wed:

ConTeXt  ver: 2020.01.30 14:13 MKIV beta  fmt: 2020.4.22 (LuaTeX 1.11.1)

and I’m running now into troubles with system font indexing:

mtxrun --script fonts --reload

locates fonts in macOS directories appropriately (*.afm fonts placed in 
.../tex/texmf-fonts are not found, but at the moment I don’t care too much), 
however it resolves only to a single font variant for *.ttc instead of all 
variants:

mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=helvetica

helvetica                         helvetica                    
helveticalightoblique         /System/Library/Fonts/Helvetica.ttc               
     6
helveticalightoblique             helvetica                    
helveticalightoblique         /System/Library/Fonts/Helvetica.ttc               
     6
helveticaneuedeskinterfaceheavy   helveticaneuedeskinterface   
helveticaneuedeskinterfaceheavy   
/System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeueDeskInterface.ttc   10
helveticaneuethinitalic           helveticaneue                
helveticaneuethinitalic       /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeue.ttc           
     14

As a consequence, when I run

\definefontfamily[mainface][ss][Helvetica Neue]
\setupbodyfont[mainface, 12pt, sans]

I get the light oblique variant instead of the regular one. I have tried to fix 
this via a 

\definefontfamily[mainface][ss][Helvetica Neue][tf=style:normal]

but apparently I understand too little about this setup altogether …

Thanks already for any suggestions!
