It is not usual for an appllication to create symlinks. More typically,
the distribution does that.
"make install" by default puts the executable in /usr/local/bin.
On default Ubuntu systems, this comes in $PATH before /usr/bin
but after $HOME/bin.
So you can customize your installation by going to the directory
into which you extracted Lua 5.3 and symlinking $PWD/src/lua to
$HOME/bin/lua53. I prefer doing the LuaJIT symlink that way too.
Custom symlinks in /usr/bin are not recommended.
