Ok, so lets go this route. I will will add "SYSINST_USE_LUA?=yes" to
sysinst's Makefile.inc (src/distrib/utils/sysinst/Makefile.inc) and use
that to trigger the Lua support (right know it uses "USE_LUA", but I
think adding the "SYSINST_" prefix makes sense). If set to yes, it will
add "-DLUA" to CFLAGS.
Then the flow can be:
.. use new shiny Lua stuff
.. keep old code intact
I don't know, however, how this has to be set to "no" for the build of a
ramdisk/floppy image. I need someone to help me with this.
