This is right, so if the feature would be supported, the macros (or
functions) shall be rewritten to return a C value.
For example:

  #define luaL_checkboolean(L,n)    (luaL_checktype(L, (n),
LUA_TBOOLEAN), lua_toboolean(L, (n))
  #define luaL_checkfunction(L,n)    (luaL_checktype(L, (n),
LUA_TFUNCTION), lua_tocfunction(L, (n))
