[vlc-devel] [PATCH] lua: build luac for the build, not the host

The real solution, I think, is upstream with Lua. They need something like
an -m32 option for producing 32-bit compatible output from their 64-bit
compiler. Right now, it has such no option (that I can find). Here's what I
added to the wiki, would be happy to update if this is wrong:


It's (relatively) simple on Fedora because both the 32-bit and 64-bit
luac's can coexist, though I saw (can't remember where) that someone needed
to compile his own 32-bit luac under a different distribution.
