QtLua links against any installed lua library and doesn't include the lua 
interpreter code so that you can use a standard or modified lua interpreter.

From the mail subject I guess you want to know if libqtlua is a lua module 
usable with require.

QtLua is not a lua binding to use Qt from lua, even if it allows writing some 
parts of a Qt user interface in lua. Although it would probably be possible to 
make libqtlua a lua module, it would not give you access to the whole Qt API 
without writing some C++ code or augmenting the embedded "qt" lua library.

QtLua is a script engine for Qt. It is designed to extend a Qt application 
using lua by exposing some Qt and application specific objects to embedded lua 
scripts. The purpose of QtLua is to make this process simple for the C++ 
application developer and to let him choose which part of the application must 
be exposed to lua scripts.
