I dont know if its the best option but it works well for me and it is quick.

In lua code:
 chunk = loadrc(resource  [,dll])

We have used this scheme for "packaging" lua add-ons. For example, you
can place luasocket in one DLL by converting the lua code to resources.
This makes it a tidy way to distribute an application.

There is a slightly out of date bin2res.lua at
You should be able to adjust this to your needs.
