We didn’t
We downloaded the lua source to the target and compiled locally. a couple of reasons

1 The compiler is not that big

2 we were targeting heterogeneous systems, so we’d have to precompile for all targets (and possibly variants of each target)

3 we thought we wanted the ability to add additional code to an executing lua program  (which would compile it via load() and execute it).
