Like so:

  texexec --passon=-recorder file.tex

The --passon feature had lapsed in the transition from perl to ruby
texexec, but Hans and Taco fixed it in one of the recent ConTeXt
releases.  I now use it all the time to get compiler-like error msgs:

  texexec --passon=-file-line-error ...

filtering the output through

  egrep -i -A 4 '^([^ :]+:[0-9]+: |output written.*pages)'

to select the error lines and a bit of context, so to speak.
