I don't pretend to understand the intricacies of all this,
but when Manuel Pégourié-Gonnard writes :

would it not be simpler (and avoid any need for symbolic
links) if the LuaTeX executable were to be installed by
the user in (say) /bin/LuaTeX, and the path then modified
to put /bin/LuaTeX earlier in the path than /bin/<architecture> ?
