you are right. Using the default ./build.sh script seems to be fine (for linking libraries). My observation is, that there must be something different done to the binary in the texlive distribution.
Who packs the OS X binaries into texlive? Is there any preprocessing step done after running ./build.sh in the LuaTeX directory? Or is the build script different from the original LuaTeX one?
