Authors ohooy! :)
Would it be possible to make the standard makefile such, that it'd work
on OS X out of the box. It wouldn't be hard, and would give a more
welcome feeling to newcomers? There was some discussion once on this,
and it got rejected, am I right?

You can compile it with the included makefiles, and you'll get the two
static libraries and the lua and luac executables (statically linked).
If you try to build shared libraries (i.e: with "make so sobin") gcc
will complain: you must change the "-shared" option to gcc and put
"-dynamiclib" instead. You might want to enable all the usual stuff on
Unix systems: popen() support and dynamic library loading via
dlopen(), the instructions in the Lua README work with any version of
MacOS X from 10.3 (previous versions of MacOS X needed a patch to
support dlopen(), or a patch over Lua sources to use the native MacOS
Remember: MacOS X is just another flavour of Un*x, hehe :P
If you want binaries ready to use you might want to try LuaCheia
(http://luacheia.sf.net), a Lua 5 distribution that includes the
several add-on modules. It is available for MacOS X as a
Installer-package: open the DMG and tap double-click with your mouse
on the package... voilà.
