Support for this is almost(?) there. If you unpack the tarball, and
run ./configure as usual and then "make bootstrap", it will install
LuaRocks using LuaRocks itself and then it shows up in "luarocks

* I forgot to update the version number in the rockspec shipped in the
tarball :-(
* I'm not currently uploading rockspecs for LuaRocks versions in the
main repository to avoid confusion with non-"bootstrap" installations
(such as the ones handled by system package managers). LuaRocks needs
to mark in its configuration at build time whether it was installed
traditionally or via "bootstrap" and check that when updating itself.
