Lua 5.1.5 (rc1) is now available at

When changing a few files on Windows (MinGW) and re-running make, the following rule causes an error:

$(LUA_A): $(CORE_O) $(LIB_O)
	$(AR) $@ $?
	$(RANLIB) $@

"$?" gives only the recently changed files but MinGW needs all files ("$^") to build the DLL. This will cause a lot of "undefined reference to..." errors.

I currently don't have my GNU/Linux machine at hand so I cannot test whether "$^" would cause any problems there. (Though I doubt it).

(I think this problem was already described by others, but I didn't find the threads now.)
