We certainly do not want to rely on libtool for building Lua. Moreover,
we do not encourage building Lua (the library) as a .so... We do
encourage building lua (the interpreter) statically and exporting the
Lua API so that dynamic libs work fine with it.

Lua 5.1 does include etc/lua,pc. Feedback on this is appreciated.
