Another option is to remove the dependency on the VC runtime by
linking with the static libc (whatever the compiler used, VC8, VC9 or
GCC). I'm doing that to release small apps based on Lua, and it's
working great.

The drawback is size. I made a comparison with VC9. With dynamic libc
(MSVCR90.DLL), the lua52.dll and lua.exe files are respectively 205kiB
and 12kiB big. With static libc they are respectively 405kiB and
