Thanks guys for the help, but even after recompiling Lua + SQLite3 +
LuaSQL for SQLite3 without stripping the binaries, I still get the
same error when trying to load the module:

/var/tmp> ./lua
Lua 5.1.4  Copyright (C) 1994-2008, PUC-Rio
> print "hello"
> require "sqlite3"
error loading module 'sqlite3' from file './':
        Unable to resolve symbol
stack traceback:
        [C]: ?
        [C]: in function 'require'
        stdin:1: in main chunk
        [C]: ?

I don't see any error when compiling the three bits. The makefiles +
output can be seen here:

To check if the issue is in LuaSQL, is there a very basic module that
I could compile just to check that Lua is able to load modules in the
absolute, or if it the problem is either with Lua itself or maybe

Maybe LuaSQL needs something else besides the SQLite3+LuaSQL that I use?

Thank you.
