You can implement a custom module searcher to have whatever lookup
mechanism you want to find shared libraries. I updated the wiki with a
Lua implementation of the default binary loader provided with Lua [1].
You can start from there and add a more complex search path mechanism.
I think the example is pretty straightforward, but feel free to ask
for explanations.
