Don't bother. The work is already done on HEAD. It has been decided that
0.10 will support Lua 4 and the next major release will support Lua 5.
Supporting both would be too difficult as it would require not only some
crud in the C code and configure but also separate versions hooks.lua.

I have Lua in my homedir and use --with-lua=$HOME/packages/lua. I hadn't
realised it before, but it appears that it is automatically linking
