 A static library is simply included in the executable in which it is

If your program supports running Lua scripts, then beware of a
potential problem with static linking; the linker will pull in only
the symbols needed for the program to compile.   There may be missing
symbols however when you try to run a script within that program.  I
believe there are ways to force all the symbols to be included.

So some recommend using the Lua .so when embedding...
