I´ve used tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010 to update my luatex. With Windows, this
was no problem, but now with Snow Leopard (MacOs X) Updating or installing
luatex  I found problems generating the formatfile

tlmgr: package repository
[1/2, ??:??/??:??] install: luatex.universal-darwin [2209k]
[2/2, 00:37/00:50] install: luatex [777k]
tlmgr: package log updated at 
running mktexlsr ...
done running mktexlsr.
regenerating fmtutil.cnf in /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-var
running fmtutil-sys --no-error-if-no-format --byengine luatex ...

fmtutil-sys --no-error-if-no-format --byengine luatex failed (status 1),
fmtutil: fmtutil: unknown option `--no-error-if-no-format'. Try fmtutil
--help for help.

I tried also fmtutil-sys --missing without an effect, also 
mktexfmt lualatex.fmt

The problem is the same using --repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010

In /usr/texbin is no luatex, but a link lualatex -> luatex. If I copy luatex
to /usr/texbin i get fatal format file error. 

Any idea?
