These are  actually my steps:
1) Download & install
2) download luatex source
3) add --without-ln-s \
just after
 --without-mf-x-toolkit --without-x \
og build.sh
4) open the MingGW Shell and do
bash build.sh
Under the MingGW
luatex  --credits gives the expected  ouput
while in cmd & powershell
luatex  --credits
gives nothing
