When I do this, I can no longer use the same module with LuaJIT,
because the module loads the standard Lua VM and those two cause
conflicts. Or at least that is my theory of why the modules I tested
were causing obscure errors like segmentation faults and started
working when I removed "-llua5.1" dependency. I may be wrong...
