  [1] Set the LUA_ROOT global variable to dirname(dirname(argv[0])) in

I'm not sure about the semantic yet, but should that not handled similar to what is done for windows in (Lua 5.1) luaconf.h?
** In Windows, any exclamation mark ('!') in the path is replaced by the
** path of the directory of the executable file of the current process.

i.e.: "!" instead of "...", correct?

Please excuse my question (I'm a windows user), why these thing is solved differently at all?
