Ah. Yeah I'd be +1 on a configure option to use the system or locally provided library. Patches
welcome :)

it's got luajit 2.0.3 bundled right with the source. There's no configure option to point
at a different luajit tree. I was about to start messing with the various LUA_* environment
vars, when I realized it was time to ask the list.

the other app working with luajit 2.0.

if it was possible to use an alternate one if you wanted to. Or to have it use the system
luajit, instead of using the bundled one.
