Build and installation was great! The configure script magically found
my 5.4 installation and just worked.

Then I successfully installed luasocket, though it seemed to install
to the current dir (which happened to be the luarocks source dir I
built from). On reading the changelog, I guess this is expected

However now everything seems to fail (regardless of where I run
luarocks from), all commands fail with:

$ sudo luarocks-5.4 list
/usr/local/share/lua/5.4/luarocks/core/path.lua:17: assertion failed!
stack traceback:
    [C]: in function 'assert'
    /usr/local/share/lua/5.4/luarocks/core/path.lua:17: in function
    /usr/local/share/lua/5.4/luarocks/path.lua:216: in function
    /usr/local/share/lua/5.4/luarocks/cmd.lua:215: in upvalue
    /usr/local/share/lua/5.4/luarocks/cmd.lua:394: in function
    /usr/local/bin/luarocks-5.4:35: in main chunk
    [C]: in ?

It looks like path.rocks_dir() is passed nil, and cfg.root_dir is nil
also. Is this expected behaviour? Did I do something wrong?
