 Using the minimals without any further configuration efforts,
 I have *never* been able to acces to my system installed fonts
 (as seen by fc-list).
 This has been, for a while now, on my list of tasks
 to try to understand and to resolve,
 so I am interested by this subject...

ConTeXt looks for system fonts only on Windows and Mac OS X (the paths are set 
in data-res.lua),
for others system you need the OSFONTDIR variable. When you want the same 
feature on Linux Hans
has to know where system fonts are stored and if these directories are the same 
on each distribution.

  BTW, if you want Context to find _both_ directories make sure you set
  your OSFONTDIR in setuptex like this:
 
  export OSFONTDIR=$HOME/.fonts;/usr/share/fonts
 
 Unfortunately, this is not sufficient, and thus refers us back to the
  original post by Mika.
 

Sorry, after running update.sh, context now finds the system fonts!
