texexec is not involved here, but your analysis made me look into 

i found that i'd swapped the -mem flags in the following snippet:

        if ($MetaFun) {
            $mpbin = 'mpost --mem=metafun' ;
        } else {
            $mpbin = 'mpost --mem=mpost' ;

there is no reason to use progname here since the mem matches it and 
using a progname would complicate things

(hartmut: you can also use texexec to convert mp to pdf: "texexec 
--mptex test.mp")
