It certainly helped and I got it working, thank you!
However, in the binaries link I only found 0.72, not 0.75 – I guess they 
are not already updated?

Now, I'd like to test luajittex with latex, and a minimal examples works 
fine. But trying to load some non-trivial packages fails with an error:

invalid escape sequence near '"

When loading babel, I get:

! LuaTeX error [string "\directlua "]:1: invalid escape sequence near '"'.
\adddialect ...alect("\string #1", "\string #2") }
                                                   \fi \fi \wlog 
{\string #1 ...
l.103   \adddialect\l at canadian\l at american

? x

And loading fontspec results in:

! LuaTeX error 
invalid escape sequence near '"'
stack traceback:
	[C]: in function 'dofile'

l.35 \endinput

I invoke luajittex by calling

luajittex --fmt=lualatex --jiton test.tex

I did not rebuild the format with luajittex – is this a problem? I 
googled fr the “invalid escape sequence” and found some google entries 
on mailing lists, but clicking on them, I did not find the corresponding 
messages …

So – is this a trivial error made by me or is anything broken?
