I am not the packager but here is what Arch Linux does for binaries:

/usr/bin/lua (this is 5.2)
/usr/bin/luajit -> luajit-2.0.3
/usr/bin/luarocks -> luarocks-5.2

and for pkgconfig:


In my opinion they should do the same thing for Lua that they
already do for LuaRocks and LuaJIT, which is use the 5.2 suffix
and have /usr/bin/lua be a symlink to /usr/bin/lua5.2.
