Well, except for replacing the lua executable with the luvit executable, there wouldn't be any additional dependencies needed.  Also it's not hard to embed your lua script in the executable if you want a single binary for everything.  If you want to use the stock lua executable, then obviously luvit isn't an option.  Just thought I would throw it out there.

thanks for the pointer.
Unfortunately I'd like something as simple as a single .lua file with
no external dependencies if not for LuaSocket ones.
it doesn't have to be as extensible or re-usable as luvit seems to be.
