Hi again,

Hans is just finished uploading a new beta that has two fixes in
this area:

* there was a bug in the TEXMFCACHE defaulting, making it ask
   strange questions if TEXMFCACHE was not set in texmfcnf.lua.

* it comes with a variation of the symlink-discovering code I
   posted earlier.
   There is an extra report line if a symlink is followed while
   discovering the full executable path. e.g.:

   LuaTools | following symlink /home/taco/mybin to /usr/local/bin

   The chosen method has a few small flaws in bordercases that will
   be corrected eventually (in a new luatex release) but it seems
   to work well enough for now

Best wishes,
