I thought the compiled scripts could be moved across platforms as long as the respective CPU's shared the same int size.

In my experience, this is sometimes untrue. For example, luac's output on x86 doesn't work with lua build for ARM, both using GCC. I am of course assuming that GCC for x86 uses a 32bit value for int, but I think it does. ARM I'm almost sure it does, and they're both little-endian.

I suppose at one point I should investigate further.
