I rebuilt it and it produces the same error. Plus, loading the format 
needs about 2 seconds. (I mean, after calling

luajittex --fmt=luajitlatex.fmt test.tex

I get

This is LuajitTeX, Version beta-0.72.0-2013010315
  restricted \write18 enabled.

than nothing happens for 2 seconds, then it goes on with


etc. I produced the format by just copying the lualatex.ini and renaming 
it into luajitlatex.ini, than executing

luajittex --ini --jiton luajitlatex.ini

Do I miss an important point somewhere? When i build a plain format by 
copying/renaming luatex.ini, I do not get this delay of 2s. So, 
something with the lualatex format does not fit with luajittex? …
