For some more critical applications for me (Like one containing wxLua)
I just link it all together statically.... Helps here.

Don't know for Lua it self, but for other things the fact that the
latter compilers
(including the free ones) can use the SSE and SSE2 instruction sets of current
processors, is a major change. Of course if you don't have those processors,
you may end up with an other reason why your code does not run.
