Hi Mojca, hi all,

Ok, but I see that Taco checked in changes for that already.

Yes, bit ONLY if you use *ONE* texmf.cnf file. When luatex is compiled
with the *old* libkpathsea it only finds and uses *ONE* texmf.cnf
files.

But in Debian we use the stacked approach now, so IMPORTANT changes
are in /etc/temxf/web2c/texmf.cnf, and if that is not read 
luatex will not find anything as far as I see. See the output of
mtxrun --generate:
resolvers       | resolving | variable 'SELFAUTOLOC' set to '/usr/bin'
resolvers       | resolving | variable 'SELFAUTODIR' set to '/usr'
resolvers       | resolving | variable 'SELFAUTOPARENT' set to '.'
resolvers       | resolving | variable 'TEXMFCNF' set to ''
resolvers       | resolving | variable 'TEXMF' set to ''
resolvers       | resolving | variable 'TEXOS' set to '/usr'
resolvers       | resolving |
resolvers       | resolving | using configuration specification 'home:texmf/web2c;selfautoparent:texmf{-local,-context,}/web2c'

resolvers       | resolving | unknown configuration file './texmf-local/web2c/texmfcnf.lua'
resolvers       | resolving | unknown configuration file './texmf-context/web2c/texmfcnf.lua'
resolvers       | resolving | unknown configuration file './texmf/web2c/texmfcnf.lua'
resolvers       | resolving |
resolvers       | resolving | warning: no lua configuration files found
resolvers       | resolving | no texmf paths are defined (using TEXMF)
resolvers       | resolving |
mtxrun          |
mtxrun          | runtime: 0.027 seconds

So I think we have to recompile luatex with new kpathsea just to fix that.

Best wishes
