I disagree.  Lua is a very small library and adding the MKLUA knob only
adds complication without any benefit.  E.g. it would mean that all
programs in base that want to use Lua would have to use C preprocessor
conditionals etc.

A lot of complexity for absolutely no gain.  Lua should now be
considered part of NetBSD.
