If the versions are the same then shouldn't the .fmt files that work
for i386-linux and
universal-darwin also work on sparc-solaris?

$ lualatex story \\end
This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.60.1-2010060704 (TeX Live 2010) (rev 3685)
 restricted \write18 enabled.

(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)$

and no log file is created.

I don't get any logs using fmtutil-sys (maybe they are in some tmp
directory other
than $TMPDIR?).   There are older logs in the web2c/luatex directory.  From the
command-line example with kapthsea-debug:

$ cat luatex.log
This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.60.1-2010060704 (TeX Live 2010) (rev
3685)  (INITEX)  9 JUN 2010 10:55
 restricted \write18 enabled.

! Emergency stop.
<*> luatex.ini

End of file on the terminal!

No pages of output.

It appears to die before it finds any files, and there are no core
files, although

$ ulimit -a
time(seconds)        unlimited
file(blocks)         unlimited
data(kbytes)         unlimited
stack(kbytes)        8192
coredump(blocks)     unlimited   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
nofiles(descriptors) 256
vmemory(kbytes)      unlimited

I tried running under truss (see attached output).

I can increase stack to 16000, but it doesn't change the behaviour.  I
also tried running
under dbx, but the behaviour is the same and I have to type <ctrl-D> to end.

If someone would just adjust the clocks so there are, say 25 or 26
hours a day I would
try compiling here (have to carry the sources around the firewall in USB stick!)

If you can think of any simple tests I can run I'll be happy to try them.
