    Arch Linux includes its own patched version of texmfcnf.lua on

Looks to me like those changes are arch-specific, hardwiring /etc/ and
so on.

    It's been broken for years.

After installing a new vanilla TL (from upstream, not any distro's
version) with collection-context, mtxrun --generate apparently worked
fine. Also, I modify and retypeset a ConTeXt document every year (the
pdftex manual), and it has worked.  --best, karl.
