The current behavior is pretty standard fare for "configure"-based
installs, so I'd prefer to keep it as it is (too much autodetection
and the install scripts soon become too hard to maintain), but adding
a check in the end to at least inform the user that their chosen
install location is not in LUA_PATH sounds like a good idea.

Sure, send them in. I'm not using/maintaining LuaCov much these days,
so it's nice to see it alive. :)
