Glad to here it. Lua compiles natively, I'm asking lots of questions
about the build process while I learn and I'm hoping to clean it up.
The Makefiles and packaging that installs Lua from ports is old and I
think it needs some work, as does the freebsd target in Lua.

I haven't used that module at all so I can't answer that. Perhaps
that's something someone else could speak to?
Is BMS Battery Management System?

No need to apologise, this is the place to get those answers. :)
