All LR3 installations use a versioned rocks dir, that's why the flag
is gone (it's now "always on").

Could you try running the problematic commands with --verbose and
sharing the results?

Instead of --lua-suffix you should use --lua-interpreter, in case
--lua-version isn't enough to autodetect it. (But given your setup, I
believe `./configure --lua-version=5.[ver]` should be sufficient).

Thank you for the report, let's dig into this. Opening an issue on
Github would be ideal, so we can track this without bothering lua-l.
