The inconsistency is a pain; I have to jump autoconf hoops to find the
right names:*checkout*/stepmania/stepmania/autoconf/m4/lua.m4?rev=1.8

with some systems having lua-config by different names, and some not having
it at all, and -config scripts are typically a pain for cross-compiling.
(But those hoops aren't going away, since the inconsistency is already in
the wild.)
