Well... don't know what you mean by 'gnuize'... do you mean releasing lua under the (L)GPL, or using gnu tools to build
lua? ... I am only interested in building lua more consistent with gnu tools, I don't care wether it's GPL'ed or not
(actually yes... I do mind.. I DON'T WANT IT TO BE GPL'ED, if you have to.. use the LGPL (that way commercial usage of
lua isn't limited in the way the GPL does -- but's a bit oftopic))... 

So I want to make this clear... I am only interested in having a 'common' way of installing lua (perhaps by providing
installation packages), the problem I'm seeing at the moment is that you can not 'install' the lua libraries & include
files from the distribution and this means that developers depending on lua don't have a consistent build environment. I
would like to be able to install lua and have 'a lot' of different projects (games, webstuff, etc) be able to use that
installed lua.
