Thank you for the help. I really appreciate the breadth of options. :)

We have a build process that builds several Lua versions from source,
so it was nice to think there might have been a way to update our
build script and propagate the changes to each built version.

I think as long as I document my changes to luaconf.h appropriately,
everything will be fine; I'll just have to remember to make the same
update to whatever Lua version comes next.
