OK. Tried to update a fresh TL installation:

sudo tlmgr --repository  http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010/ update --all

Not sure what went wrong. I am attaching the metapost and metafun log 
files, but they appear to be from the original TL installation (based on 
the time stamp).

On the plus side, I do not 2010.07.30 version of context and a simple 
context document containing metapost does comiple fine. (I cannot test 
MkII because I don't have a working ruby installation on this machine).
