My luarocks installation on OS X comes from the lua installed via
Homebrew. That was a while ago. Since then I have been upgrading
luarocks using the above method, and it has worked. I recently
upgraded to OS X Sierra, but now I get:

$ luarocks install luarocks

Error: Your user does not have write permissions in /usr/local
-- you may want to run as a privileged user or use your local tree with --local.

Any way to work around that, because the /usr/local/ subfolders seems
to be writable.
