Of course it does -- provided you compiled it according to the
instructions given in luajit_install.html. The Makefile even has
a target for compiling with MinGW ...

You should get a (small) luajit.exe and a (200K+) lua51.dll which
is link-compatible with extension modules compiled for plain Lua.

I.e. Lua-GD should work out-of-the-box with LuaJIT.

Ummm, you compiled everything statically into one executable.
This doesn't work for Windows. C extension modules really need
the Lua or LuaJIT core to be in an extra DLL.
