FWIW, FreeBSD ports system does very little.  It munges the Makefile
to replace /usr/local with $PREFIX so one can install it in
an alternate location.

That said, please open a new thread if you want to propose using
autotool.  My initial message with a patch to break AR into AR &
ARFLAGS is getting swamped by the noise.

Back to the original topic, I see at least 3 votes in favor and one
who mentioned an alternative option (but was not workable).

Anyone else care to comment on the splitting of AR into AR & ARFLAGS?

By the way, is there a public view into the lua source repository?
Maybe maintainers have already applied the fix and I just don't
know it ;)
