You are getting luatex from TeX Live. At what point do you get that
warning? You should definitely get this if you don't initialize the
minimals (that is - if you don't use ". setuptex" or don't add PATH to

I admit that I made some changes a few hours ago, so it would be very
helpful to know what sequence of commands exactly you use and when
exactly this happens.

You mean even before first-setup.sh finishes the job? If this is the
case ... One thing that might happen is that you use some random
intermediate version of first-setup.sh that doesn't pass --engine= to
mtx-update or that mtx-update forgets to respect that option.

I should reboot my computer in order to test.

bin and man should be present in both. It's weird that they are
missing in osx-intel. web2c is generated during "texexec --make ...",
so if formats are not made that can explain it.

That's quite possible. I guess that
    uname -m
returns i386 on your machine, that you are running Snow Leopard, have
MacTeX or TeX Live installed. But I would not expect the minimals to
hang with that message.
