Yes this dependency should not be forced on Windows. The rocks that are available should be built and hosted as binaries that link to the VC8 CRT. Thoughts?

May I ask why VC8 instead of VC9 ? Is it because MinGW lacks support for VC9 (I haven't checked, just guessing).

Just asking because a large part of our codebase uses VC6 and we're considering migrating to VS2008 eventually. So no VC8 for me, sadly. Also, as someone said, there will probably be a MSVCRT10 :D Seems like there's no long term solution.

Well it is really because the majority of the modules already were compiled for VC8 so we decided not to rebuild them. The project is more about packaging then building. We are waiting for LuaRocks to take that role. :)
