I have no idea what went wrong, but this implies that your
installation might be slightly broken. /usr/texbin should point to
something. Mine points to
    texbin -> ../Library/TeX/Distributions/.DefaultTeX/Contents/Programs/i386
(and there are some other symlinks in that path as well), but I need
to admit that I have never tried to make luatex work with the existing
installation (tried once and then gave up).
