I also run Arch Linux and ran into this problem when testing svn
versions of LuaTeX. Are you sure that you copied the binary into
/usr/bin? This is essential because TeXLive is setup to find the texmf
trees relative to the location of the binary. Élie did include this
step, but you may have missed it due to its unintuitive nature.

Another possibility is to change the configuration in
/etc/texmf/web2c/texmf.conf to use absolute paths. I believe this
should also work.

I hope this helps
