The makefiles in the standard Lua distributions are really for Unix systems.

The MinGW target is a simple hack that works for building Lua but not
for installing it because "make install" does not know about the build
target. Sorry about that.

You may want to add the target below in the top-level Makefile
if you find yourself frequently building and installing Lua with mingw:

mingw-install:	mingw
	$(MAKE) install INSTALL_TOP=c:/users/public/lua/5.1 TO_BIN="lua.exe luac.exe lua51.dll"
