Actually, these strings are embedded in the Lua library:

% ident liblua.a
     $Lua: Lua 5.1.4 Copyright (C) 1994-2008, PUC-Rio $
     $Authors: R. Ierusalimschy, L. H. de Figueiredo & W. Celes $
     $URL: $

I see your point but I don't know what to do about it. Minor versions are
supposed to be binary compatible so you can compile use one lua.h and link
with another liblua.a, as you have found out.
