I'm sure this has been done before, but google is not being my friend when

I have a folder full of lua modules (written in lua) and I want them
embedded in my binary at compile/link time in such a way that the require
system can find them.

Is there a cross-platform way to embed these scripts and make
them accessible to require?

I'm using luajit, but I think this question is generic.

I'm maintaining a project [1] where the Makefile has 2 targets: "noembed" and "embed". The project itself is Windows-only but it isn't relevant to its method of embedding Lua files.

I believe the source code is self-explanatory; you can contact me off-list if it isn't.
