Not sure about this one.

luac, a tool, tends to special use and I suspect it sometimes needs to
be static linked. Consider: you need to use luac where the dynamic libs
are not installed or not available for some other reason, wrong version,
wrong compiler, whatever, static will always work.

The answer is probably allow for linking either way, just that I think
the default for luac should be static.
