Which zip from which website?
You mean some more recent texlive from
    http://www.tug.org/ftp/texlive/Images/ ?
Or the context zips from the pragma site ?

texmfstart texexec --make --alone
    ! pdfetex.pool doesn't match; tangle me again (or fix the path).

So same error but a pdftex is created in the current directory
(just above the main tex ConTeXt directory)
But the above "texexec --make --alone" seams to create file
in the "texmf-macosx/web2c" directory

    ! pdfetex.pool doesn't match; tangle me again (or fix the path).

This commande create a pdftex directory in the current directory as  
above.
So I change dir into "texmf-macosx/web2c", redo the texmfstart but
get the same result.

I have several "pdfetex.pool" because I have tetex (from fink which  
work)
texlive-2004 (which worked but is unused) and texlive-2005 which doen't
work. But neither of these TeX distribution are in my path during  
these trys

   type -a texexec latex
   texexec is /Users/diam/live/local/pack/tex/context-20060215/tex/ 
texmf-macosx/bin/texexec
   bash: type: latex: not found

   cd texmf-macosx/web2c
   mv pdfetex.pool pdfetex.pool.bak
   texmfstart newtexexec --make --alone

      ! I can't read pdfetex.pool; bad path?

So i seem it is the right pdfetex.pool file
      -rw-r--r--   1 diam  uma   36906  8 fév 09:52 pdfetex.pool.bak


On more try : I stole the pool file from the linux tree to the macosx  
tree
   cp -p ../../texmf-linux/web2c/pdfetex.pool .
   texmfstart newtexexec --make --alone

... and the formats is creaded !! ...
... But I can compile any context file !?

So it mean the macosx pool file is broken?
