Do we want to be able to use lua in RC scripts etc? E.g. would it make
sense to push it into root?

Why do you force static linkage of the Lua programs?

You don't have to set MAN if it is ${PROG}.1. -DLUA_USE_READLINE should
be in CPPFLAGS and <> included first. Same for the lib.

Should -DLUA_USE_DLOPEN be conditional on MKPIC?
