Because Lua is embedded, I use an Xcode 4 framework for the project where it may be statically or dynamically linked. This works for 5.1.4 
My aims are to gain familiarity with 5.2 and at the same time future proof the code by eliminating all depreciated functions and to adopt the newer features. Using compatibility switches might be a transitional solution, but it does not seem to way to future proofing. Whatever, there is no documentation or sample code that I can find appropriate the the task. 
The supplied Makefiles worked fine for a standard (from command line) Lua install, but that is not my development environment.
