Yes, this was the order:

After an i-installation running ConTeXt (by pdfeTeX) works right out
of the box (without any commandline action), same for plain XeTeX
(plainTeX by XeTeX?).
But running a ConTeXt document by XeTeX fails:
TeXExec 5.4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005
fixing engine variable : pdfetex
executable : xetex
format : cont-en
inputfile : text
output : pdftex
interface : en
current mode : none
TeX run : 1
This is XeTeX, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.99b (Web2C 7.5.3)
(WARNING: translate-file "natural.tcx" ignored)
---! /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/cont-en.fmt was written
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)
return code : 256
run time : 1 seconds
total run time : 1 seconds
Someone knows what to do?
