I compiled Lua on an x86 and run it on an ARM processor. If you have
your arm-linux- toolchain already prepared, this is one of the easier
programs to crosscompile. From recollection, all I did was
edit ./config so that everything was set up for Linux, and changed gcc
to arm-linux-gcc, then changed ln to arm-linux-ln in ./Makefile. It was
a very pain-free process.
