As I was reading more about compiling, I saw the "-static" option, so
decided to give it a try when compiling the Lua interpreter:

bfin-linux-uclibc-gcc -o lua -static
-L/usr/src/baps/uClinux-dist/lib -L/usr/src/baps/uClinux-dist/root/lib
-L/var/tmp/sqlite-amalgamation-3070400 -lcrypt -ldl -lm -O2 -Wall
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations
-I/var/tmp/sqlite-amalgamation-3070400 -DLUA_USE_POSIX
-DLUA_USE_DLOPEN lua.o liblua.a

lvm.c:(.text+0x970): undefined reference to `_floor'

Could it be that the libraries that were used with Lua aren't
available on the appliance, and would explain the error I'm getting
when trying to load a Lua module?

Unfortunately, using "find / -name", neither ldd nor nm are available
in the appliance :-/

However, it seems to work OK when run on the Ubuntu workstation:

ubuntu:/var/tmp/luasocket-2.0.2/src# nm -u -g
         w __Jv_RegisterClasses
         w ___cxa_finalize
         w ___deregister_frame_info@@GCC_3.0
         U ___errno_location
         U ___h_errno_location
         w ___register_frame_info@@GCC_3.0
         U _accept

Thanks much, but I got a lot of errors when trying to compile it:

ubuntu:/var/tmp/ldd# make
bfin-linux-uclibc-gcc -O2 -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes
-Wmissing-declarations -I/usr/src/baps/uClinux-dis
t/staging/usr/include -I/var/tmp/sqlite-amalgamation-3070400 -static
-L/usr/src/baps/uClinux-dist/stagi ng/usr/lib
-L/usr/src/baps/uClinux-dist/lib -L/usr/src/baps/uClinux-dist/root/lib
-L/var/tmp/sqlite-ama lgamation-3070400 -lcrypt -ldl -lm -o ldd ldd.c

ldd.c:42:19: error: bswap.h: No such file or directory
ldd.c:48:21: error: dl-defs.h: No such file or directory

I also checked the latest uClinux-dist (from 2009), and it doesn't
seem to include "ldd" either:

ubuntu:/var/tmp# ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 14 root root      4096 2009-12-24 09:37 uClinux-dist
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 473128809 2011-01-23 18:01

ubuntu:/var/tmp# find ./uClinux-dist -name "ldd*"

I find this a bit strange, since "ldd" is such a basic tool.

So at this point...
1. I can run a basic Lua script
2. I can load a basic Lua module
3. Any standard Lua module fails with "Unable to resolve symbol"

I'll try to find an ldd that I can cross-compile and see what it says.

Thank you.
