It was thus said that the Great Vadim A. Misbakh-Soloviov once stated:

  You don't need to do that.  If you define LUA_VERSION as an environment
variable, make will use that instead of the built-in value.  As a quick
test, you can do:

	make LUA_VERSION="6.1" DESTDIR=/tmp/foo install

and you'll see it will get intstall into /tmp/foo/usr/local/share/lua/6.1/
and /tmp/foo/usr/local/lib/lua/6.1/ .
