I am surprised that 'make MYCFLAGS=-DLUA_COMPAT_ALL' stopped working!
I'm in the process of checking my development stack works with Lua 5.3 (luaposix,
lua-stdlib, lyaml, specl etc.). Since the shipped Makefile only produces static
libraries, (which in turn have slightly odd behavior when combined with loadable
modules on Mac OS X -- occasionally dumping core among other strangeness)... I
have a continuous integration script which uses libtool to portably build a liblua
et. al on the architectures I use.
For the longest time, I use -DLUA_COMPAT_ALL in that script's CPPFLAGS, for maximum
compatibility across Lua releases. But for Lua 5.3.0rc3 I have to use different
flags (-DLUA_COMPAT_5_2, others?). It would be more pleasant for forward compat-
ability with build environments that custom compile a Lua from source to still
honor the original flag.
