this is a repost/the same as http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/7027/lualatex-use-system-font-monaco-on-mac-os-x

The answer I got "copy the font somewhere else" seems to me like a workaround. Wolfgang Schuster told me that with ConTeXt it is possible to use fonts from a system folder.

The post:

I'd like to use the Mac OS X (.dfont) Monaco with LuaLaTeX. With this input file


I get the following error message:

luaotfload | Font names database not found, generating new one.
             This can take several minutes; please be patient.

and this is what luatex --version tells me:

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.64.0-2010111215

Now the question is: what do I need to do in order to use Monaco with LuaLaTeX?
