Not everybody in the world is using x86 or AMD64.  It's still import for
other platforms where Lua is used (ARM, for example.)

But do users ever compile it themselves on ARM? Or isn't that always
higher up with specialist in the consumption chain?

I routinely build it on ARM.  Why should ARM, MIPS, SPARC, SH-4, x86 or
any other architecture user be forced to change the Makefile?

I routinely build on ARM as well as for linux and linux-mingw32
and only use the supplied makefile as a guide.

For embedded applications, I sometimes need to compile different source
modules with different options, so the supplied makefiles don't always
work for me anyways.

I guess that I'm saying any changes made in the standard makefiles
don't really affect my build system for Lua...
