Update fo Lua in base, and pkgsrc modules


I am playing with Lua nowadays.

bitwise operations.
Is there a plan to import newer Lua 5.2 into base?
5.2 has bitwise operation for example (AND operation) and so on.

And Lua in NetBSD base is not recognized as builtin version of Lua
from pkgsrc/lang/lua.
If I understand correctly, this is caused from Lua in base does not
detect modules from pkgsrc (for example, pkgsrc/devel/lua-lrexlib-pcre).
What is the best way to use Lua in base as builtin version of

Thank you.
