No. A bit of Lua support is installed. And inside lua(la)tex (four  
times as big as pdftex, one quarter the size of xetex) is a Lua  
interpreter. In TeX Live 2010 source code you can find Lua 5.1  
sources. Because of the embedded Lua interpreter lua(la)tex can  
interpret Lua code embedded inside a TeX (source) file.

Lua can be installed with Fink or MacPorts.
