You can write your definitions in a file, say mydefs.h, and then
build Lua with -DLUA_USER_H='"mydefs.h"'.
In mydefs.h, you need to do
#define LUA_PATH_DEFAULT ...
#define LUA_CPATH_DEFAULT ...
If you're using the Makefile in the source distribution, you can say
make linux MYCFLAGS='-DLUA_USER_H='"'"'"mydefs.h"'"'"
Yes, it's a mess of quotes because one layer is stripped by the shell,
another by make, another by the shell that makes invokes, etc...
