What options did you compile the combined version with? Did you try 
-finline-functions on it? Because I'm very surprised that you're not seeing 
anything at all.

(Apart from anything else, tweaking the Lua source so non-exported symbols 
were defined static should allow the compiler to generate short-range jumps 
instead of long-range, cross-module jumps. This ought to reduce code size 
noticeably, as well as slightly improving perfomance.)
