For fat systems like OS-X and MS-Windows I would recommend to consider
linking Lua statically. Lua itself is tiny:

$ ll /usr/lib/liblua5.1.a 
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 212128 Sep 10  2006 /usr/lib/liblua5.1.a

so you could avoid relying on a Lua installation altogether. It only
requires ANSI-C so building it should be a breeze for someone in the
know of OS-X like Hans.
