  Depending on what he wants to do with LaTeX-luatex, he might:

  1. (The smartest) Use a solution like XeTeX's xu-hyphen package to
  wrap the pattern-loading routine into something that looks more like
  UTF-8 (I don't know how this is done exactly so I cannot be more
  precise).

  2. (Quick and dirty) De-activate the troublesome hyphen files by
  either using a custom language.dat, or creating empty files to
  override the standard ones.

  In TeX Live 2007 The files in questions should be

-rw-r--r-- 1 areutena promo8 0 sep 26 18:43 gahyph.tex
-rw-r--r-- 1 areutena promo8 0 sep 26 18:43 huhyphn.tex
-rw-r--r-- 1 areutena promo8 0 sep 26 18:44 ruhyphen.tex
-rw-r--r-- 1 areutena promo8 0 sep 26 18:44 srhyphc.tex
-rw-r--r-- 1 areutena promo8 0 sep 26 18:44 trhyph.tex
-rw-r--r-- 1 areutena promo8 0 sep 26 18:44 ukrhypmp.tex

  3. (Even faster) If he's only interested in testing LuaTeX features,
  use plain LuaTeX.
