Hi Rob,

We could argue this into next year, but IMO the best answer is for
configure scripts and/or makefiles to check for all (5?) of the common

I already do in my scripts; the thrust of my comment was about systems
that do not allow multiple versions of Lua to be installed at the same
time.  I simply mentioned that it's probably the better of the evils to
change such places to using Debian's styling, as as you have already
discovered, people assume this is "the one" because it's so common.

I don't really mind the different naming schemes, in fact handling those is half the point of having a makefile in the first place (IMHO). However I'm not going to test a dozen UNIX variants myself, I'd much rather write code :-)
