In order to do it, you have to jump through a whole bunch of hoops;
the upstream lua makefiles don't do it for you.  (We don't use their
makefiles, and we wound up renaming every .c file to have a .cc
extension, as I recall.)   It's reasonable to assume system
integrators have not gone to the trouble.

Also, a library built that way would be binary incompatible - you'd
have to give it a different soname and .pc file and everything.
