ah! thanks! so there is possibly a problem indeed with x86_64-darwinlegacy

1. I absolutely dislike the smart-phone looks which were introduced at Yosemite
2. my SSD is nearly saturated and I won't engage into risky system upgrade
I can imagining updating to a more recent macOS, but won't do only to
resolve a luatex binary issue.

I had forgotten to say that I had tested with Lua 5.2 on my system
as well (don't remember the minor minor number) and got similar result
as with Lua 5.3.3, which are a bit faster than the TL2016 texlua
I expect other mac os users will be with x86_64-darwinlegacy.
A possibly 100% slow-down of luatex is perhaps not a big deal
if it happens only in directlua code.
