In the comming release, to be uploaded shortly, I re-enable ttc fonts on
macosx so that people can find the broken ones so we explicitly
blacklist them.

Any one on macosx is encouraged to run mkluatexfontdb with -v option and
find what file luatex is stuck with, files can then be added to
otfl-blacklist.cnf file one by one until the script runs smoothly, then
please send me the filename so we ship it with the package.

If we got nothing before texlive freeze, I'll have to globally disable
ttc fonts on macosx again.
