Ok, so lets go this route.  I will will add "SYSINST_USE_LUA?=yes" to
sysinst's (src/distrib/utils/sysinst/ 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:

#ifdef LUA
  .. 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.
