I understand: Lua 5.1.1 is still an implementation of the Lua 5.1
language. So paths like /usr/share/lua/5.1 will be unaltered. 

But if a developers want to check if the bug-fix-release is available, they
will use:

PKG_CHECK_MODULES(LUA, lua >= 5.1.1)

if they don't care about the bug-fix, they will use:


I maintain Lua on ArchLinux and will have to release a 5.1.1 package.
I'm sure users will file bug reports about this, if i don't patch
pkg-config metainformation.
