Wrong file. Do not touch cont-en.tex, please. The correct file
for system-wide configuration is cont-sys.tex, and the distribution 
contains an example of such a file for you to rename & edit (the
distribution will never ever contain an astual cont-sys.tex itself).
The example file is tex/context/user/cont-sys.rme, and the canonical
location for cont-sys.tex is that same directory.

Cont-sys is loaded at runtime, so there is no need to regenerate the
context formats after creating it, just mktexlsr is sufficient.

Best wishes,
