Bug#338597: lmodern is unusable with context from the latest teTeX.

Package: lmodern
Version: 0.92-11

Hello, I am running debian unstable with the following packages installed:

ii  lmodern                        0.92-11                        
ii  tetex-base                     3.0-10                         
ii  tetex-bin                      3.0-10.1                       
ii  tetex-extra                    3.0-10                        

The CONTEXT distribution that is contained in the above tetex packages 
requires the lmodern fonts in EC encoding. Unfortunately the lmodern package 
currently in unstable contains the fonts in cork encoding. Since the lmodern 
package is currently orphaned is there perhaps some sort of workaround, like 
regenerating the .tfm files somehow?

Thank you,
Kostantinos Koukopoulos

PS. A sample run of texexec follows:

$ cat test.tex

$ texexec test.tex
