Sorry about that. We've just dropped in the standard GNU INSTALL file,
which only holds true if you build a release.
I'll add a note to README before the next release, thanks.
You have several options:
1) Use Luarocks: luarocks install stdlib
That's it! This is the easiest way to get stdlib by fare.
2) Use a full source release: https://github.com/rrthomas/lua-stdlib/archive/v34.1.tar.gz
now you will have the files you need, to follow the INSTALL instructions,
(as root!) make install
3) Change to the release tag in your git checkout:
git checkout v34.1
proceed to step 2 above.
4) Be a developer, install versions of the autotools somewhere on PATH, then,
autoreconf --force --verbose --install
proceed to step 2 above to finish now that you have the generated files.
