Dear Joeng, dear Thomas,

Thank you so much for your message and your invaluable help.
Indeed thanks to Thomas' instructions, after correcting a few  
details, I could install LuaTeX and typeset the file test-1.tex with  
the command

	texexec --lua test-1.tex

However, the execution stops with this error message:

	<everyjob> \the \everyloadluacode
    	                               \the \everyfinalizeluacode \the  

but after ignoring such messages with the command


(meaning "run" without complaining...) I get the expected PDF file.

Since this is not yet a clean and thoroughly working installation, I  
have not yet tried to put the install informations on the Wiki. Later  
next week I'll try to re-install everything anew and see whether I  
have well understood what is needed to run LuaTeX on MacOS X.

Best regards: OK
