[Dev-luatex] Noobie question

I guess this is really a basic question: I tried to compile luatex  
under OSX, this works, but I get the following error:

   * Error: The main texmf tree was not found.                     *
   * Use the --datadir option to specify its parent directory.     *
   * If you do not have the files, you should be able to them from *
   * the same place you got these sources from, or from one of the *
   * CTAN hosts.                                                   *

Regardless of this message, it still compiles. However, when I try to  
typeset the manual, I get the following fatal error:
I can't find the format file `/Users/simi/Desktop/luatex- 

luatex.fmt is nowhere on my system. Should this be part of the  
snapshot or is this something I should build myself?
