No, only an older one: version 1.4

In the end it helped me to experiment in a better way and to
get it done although I don't feel like understanding very much about how
dynamic linking is organized under FreeBSD.

I got it working by linking like this:
ld -o -L/usr/local/lib -llua -llualib -shared $(LOBJS)   

As Jens said in his answer it seems important to make available the
symbols of the Lua C API.

First I tried -fPIC and -DPIC but it seems it works without.
Then I tried -DUSE_POPEN=1   -DUSE_DLOPEN=1 but this isn't necessary

Thanks a lot.
