The 5.0 license defines 'Software' as "this software and associated
documentation files".

Anyway, says:

  The only requirement is that if you do use Lua, then you should give us
  credit by including the appropriate copyright notice somewhere in your
  product or its documentation.

So, this applies to source code distributions and also to binaries linked
with Lua. Isn't that clear? We moved to the MIT license so that this kind of
questions were easily answered...
