1) The library/archive and object suffixes e.g. ldo.o and liblua.a. Could
we have 

so I can easily set 


I do not care what the macros are called so long as I can change
them easily. With nmake on win32  I currently use stuff like 
which I find a bit tacky.

2) I would move the directory creation into each individual makefile
e.g. the makefile in lua/src would create lua/lib. This means
that the trickiest conversion which is the makefile (that is in lua/)
can be ignored

Can you explain the logic of distributing the makefiles with the
"co" and "klean" targets included? I do not see their relevance
to building Lua from the distribution. My logic being that if they
were not included the distro makefiles would be simpler.

The other experience that I can add is as follows:

All the Lua makefiles convert to the different makes that I use and have used
without too much difficulty. However, I need to often change the file
suffixes and the "include" syntax changes across makes. 
I was wondering, given that the Lua makefiles are so small, whether it
would be simpler to have A (one) (1) makefile in the Lua root directory
that builds src, lib, lua and luac. This would not be a big makefile and
would have the advantage of there being only one file to edit and not
having change the "include" syntax in each of the child makefiles.
