[tex-live] More trouble with TeXLive 2008 preview on Windows

It looks like more things were broken in the installation.

>mtxrun --script fonts --list
produced an error:

MtxRun | error unable to locate texmfcnf.lua
MtxRun | skipping configuration for C:/Program
Files/texlive/2008/texmf/web2c from Documents and
MtxRun | unknown script: fonts

Then I ran

luatools --generate
luatools --ini --compile --verbose cont-en

The 2nd command also gave an error (looks like problem with space in path name):
<<error unable to locate texmfcnf.lua>>
<<skipping configuration for C:/Program Files/texlive/2008/texmf/web2c
from Documents and
I can't find file `C:/Program.tex'.
<*> C:/Program
               Files/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/cont-en.tex \dump
Please type another input file name:

but after I ran "texexec --make --all --lua" then "mtxrun --script
fonts --list" finally worked. But the system fonts were *not* listed
despite the fact that OSFONTDIR = $SystemRoot/fonts// is present in
texmf.cnf. So, the system fonts work with XeTeX, but obviously not
with LuaTeX because of this.

Also "context --make" gave the same error that "luatools --ini
--compile --verbose cont-en", so context is completely broken.

Hope this feedback helps,
