I am completely new to ConTeXt and have just started to experiment with writing metapost directly within ConTeXt. My problem is that some of my existing metapost files call other metapost files which in turn call yet other metapost files. How, do I get ConTeXt to recognise these other files?

    Just use \startMPinclusions[+] input mpfile; \stopMPincusions.
