texlive-context: fails with ruby 2.0

ConTeXt fails to work with ruby 2.0.

You can try to reproduce the problem by setting

sudo port set ruby ruby20

(on 10.9 ruby 2.0 is probably default already) and then trying to compile a simple hello world document with texexec hello.tex:

Hello world!

Testing with MacTeX 2013 (not the one by MacPorts) throws:

/opt/local/lib/ruby2.0/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:53:in `require': /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/scripts/context/ruby/base/switch.rb:501: invalid multibyte escape: /\xFF/ (SyntaxError)
	from /opt/local/lib/ruby2.0/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:53:in `require'
	from /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/scripts/context/ruby/texexec.rb:11:in `<main>'

I attached the patch. While at it you probably can also remove the other patch in texlive-context.
