wanted: hints on compiling lpeg for windows. I'm trying to use msys/mingw,

I suspect I need some linker option to look in the lua dll for these

LPeg compiles not differently from other Lua libraries.
Are you able to compile any other Lua library?

With mingw (no msys), I specify:
  -L<path_to_lua_dll> -l<name_of_lua_dll>

E.g., if I have c:\exe\lua5.1.dll, then:
  -Lc:\exe -llua5.1
