Ok, bad then.

Yes indeed, I started on that bug gave up after some time.

Hmm, I don't know ... I will see what I can do. Maybe the
hardcore to use all of texlive sources as sources for luatex,
but build only luatex for now ... until a new standalone release
is done.

I think this is the best intermediate solution.
