It's not as easy at it sounds. After putting luatex inside ~/Library/texbin, creating symlinks lualatex, texlua and texluac, adding a texmf.cnf containing

TEXMROOT = /usr/local/texlive/2016
TEXMFLOCAL = /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

and adding to .bash_profile

export PATH="$HOME/Library/texbin":$PATH

then texdoc no longer works

$ texdoc texlive
/Library/TeX/texbin/texdoc:7: module 'texdoc.main' not found:
	no field package.preload['texdoc.main']
	[kpse lua searcher] file not found: 'texdoc.main'
	[kpse C searcher] file not found: 'texdoc.main'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/texdoc.so'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/loadall.so'
	no file './texdoc.so'

nor does fmtutil

$ fmtutil --byengine luatex
fmtutil: fmtutil is using the following fmtutil.cnf files (in precedence order):
fmtutil:   /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c/fmtutil.cnf
fmtutil:   /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/web2c/fmtutil.cnf
fmtutil: fmtutil is using the following fmtutil.cnf file for writing changes:

I've tried all sorts of things:

- Putting kpsewhich alongside luatex inside ~/Library/texbin, as suggested by Norbert. Norbert's test "kpsewhich -show-path .cnf" then only returns directories inside ~/Library/texbin. Without putting kpsewhich there, the same test only returns directories inside /usr/local/texlive/2016.

- Setting also TEXMFCNF inside texmf.cnf


- Create also a texmfcnf.lua with

return { 
  content = {
    variables = {
      TEXMFCNF     = "{selfautodir:,/usr/local/texlive/2016}{,{/share,}/texmf{-local,}/web2c}"
      TEXMFSYSVAR     = "/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-var",
      TEXMFDIST       = "/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist",
      TEXMFSYSCONFIG  = "/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-config",
      TEXMFFONTS      = "/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-fonts",
      TEXMFPROJECT    = "/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-project",

None of this has the slightest effect!

I'm done, this is simply way above my league and has consumed far too much time already. Will wait for TeX Live 2017.
