The code in the luatex TRUNK initializes a lua variable named


which is the directory where luatex's executable resides, with
symlinks resolved. This code is not yet in the 0.25.3 that is

If that would help (of which I am not sure), I can do a backport
of that functionality to texlive (but only if it would actually
help, of course)

Best wishes,
