The first observation is that this example needs LuaRocks, which isn't
part of LfW. You can remove this line, alien is on the Lua path.
However, a more serious problem is that it's a specifically Unix
example.  If you had GTK for Windows, then it would work if that
'/usr/lib' path was replaced with the actual path to the GTK DLL.
Although cool, this example really should be taken out of LfW.

life.lua will only work properly in a Command Prompt. lua.exe is on
the path so typing 'lua life.lua' should work if you open a box in
that directory.

As for LuaJIT - well, it's definitely part of the plan for the next release!
