Thanks for the help. The problem was my lack of understanding of how this all worked. When you ‘make install’ it shows you where it put everything, and I was trying to change the luaconf.h in the spot that the install said it was, thinking that would change things. I realize now that I had to rebuild lua with the new source code and then install it.
