I don't like autohell, but I have learned that when working with projects based on autotools, don't try to fight back... Autotool-build the libraries that the autotool'ed project depends on also.

I had success with using;a=tree I recently noticed;a=tree;f=patches/lua-5.1.4;hb=HEAD , but I have not tried it.

I think it would be good if and files were maintained in the distribution. A basic, readable makefile that you patch to your need is still good to offer. But automatic adapting to different platforms are far better handled by autotools or Cmake.

Is there any reason why lua do not use a configure script generated by autoconf/automake?

For example to use the solaris compiler I do have to patch the Makefile in the src directory, with a correct configuration script this would not be neccessary :)
