I don't think it's a silly question, but I'm afraid I can't answer most of it, however,

How are you invoking cc (ld/install...)?  For me, "cc -shared test.c" creates a library called a.out and "cc -shared test.c -o" makes a library called, not

Just in case, "cc main.c -ltest" does expect a to be available, but you usually don't link to Lua modules at compile time, and I don't think that's your problem.
