This doesn't seem quite right: context switches it off, but lua(la)tex
will use kpse file searching

I regularly use development builds of luatex in the main texlive tree
(I don't bother maintaining separate trees, just drop the new binary
(for me) /usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-cygwin/luatex and rebuild
the formats with fmtutil-sys.
