Well, what I'm doing for my Linux LuaJIT binaries is to build them
using an *ancient* version of Ubuntu (I use Ubuntu 8.04 LTS) via
chroot, see for instance:
The distro compatibility of the resulting binary can be checked using this tool:
Even if not LSB-compliant you'll observe a very large degree of
