The pc file in the lua 5.1.4 sources is named "lua.pc".

Is there anything that tells the packager if and how it should be renamed?

lua5.1.pc ?
lua-5.1.pc ?
lua51.pc ?

I figure if the people who wrote Lua wanted it named something else,
they would have done it.

(I am sure this has been discussed ad nauseum already.)
