This seems to work:

   make mingw
   make install INSTALL_TOP=c:/users/public/lua/5.1
TO_BIN="lua.exe luac.exe lua51.dll"

the file ‘liblua.a’ will then go into lib/ without further parameters.


Just curious: why isn’t it default on windows to include the dll?

The .dll should go where the binary is, so it can be found without altering the PATH. With MinGW, usually static libraries(.a) go into lib/ and shared libraries(.dll) go into bin/

I don't really know, sorry about that.
